YouTube content moderation might one day be the only human job. It's The Daily Crunch.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5 2017 By Darrell Etherington

YouTube will have a small army of content moderators by the end of next year, GM wants you to shop behind the wheel and IBM launches a chip designed for AI. That and more in The Daily Crunch for December 5, 2017.

1. YouTube will recruit up to 10K for content moderation

YouTube is beefing up its moderation team with a commitment to increase it overall to 10,000 people by the end of next year.

That'll mean there's essentially a small town committed entirely to making sure YouTube doesn't run afoul of advertisers who look to it for keeping their content off potentially problematic videos, and that videos targeting kids with weird interpretations of children's characters don't make it onto the service.

2. GM puts in-car shopping live across its vehicles

GM has done something pretty surprising – made it possible to shop in your car, even while driving, using the infotainment display. It seems a bit wild to encourage drivers to do something like shop while driving, but GM hopes it'll decrease distracting driving by keeping people off their smartphones.

3. IBM has a new chip aimed at AI

IBM has developed a Power chip designed specifically for use in AI and machine learning applications, called the Power9. It's apparently a very strong contender alongside the general field of AI hardware, in terms of bandwidth and IO capabilities.

4. Google launches Android Oreo (Go Edition)

This is the first launch of Google's lightweight OS, designed to perform better on devices with lower performance capabilities and specs.

5. Apple Pay Cash launches in the U.S.

Apple pushed out an update for its devices which enabled Apple Pay Cash for peer-to-peer payments via iMessage, but it only now turned on the feature for users – limited to those in the U.S. for now.

6. Intuit acquires a time tracking service for $340 million

Enterprise software still sells for a whole lot, even if there's nothing quite so boring as time tracking.

7. TechCrunch Disrupt SF winner Pi Charging raises $11.4 million

Wireless charging is pretty cool but it could be a lot better, and Pi Charging wants to make that happen by expanding its range so it doesn't require direct contact. The startup just raised $11.4 million to build out its product offerings.
