Alegion’s Image Moderation provides high volume pass fail moderation with optional rejection codes. Customers can customize the acceptability guidelines or choose from a default set. Images moderation is performed by cloud labor pools that are continuously assessed for accuracy and speed. Alegion moderation usually takes less than 90 seconds and can process millions of records a day at near 100% quality.

How it Works

User generated content uploaded to a website is passed to Alegion via our Moderation API. The image is then shown to multiple workers simultaneously and their answers are compared. If the workers have reached a unanimous consensus, the moderation result is provided back to the customer. If the workers differ on their moderation judgement, a final arbitrator is tasked to make a determination. Arbitrators or a smaller group of workers that have demonstrated exceptional quality in the use case and can be trusted to make the correct judgement. Once the judgement is accepted, all of the previous workers scores are updated and the data is passed back to the customer.

Configurable Features
  • Moderation Guidelines – These are the guidelines shown to the workers that are used for both initial training and reference when performing the moderation. Customers can use Alegion’s default acceptable use guidelines, or upload their own.
  • Rejection Codes – When a moderation image fails, workers can optionally be presented with list of configurable rejection codes. The workers selection is appended to the moderation result

Considerations
  • Alegion’s UGC moderation can be used to supplement algorithmic moderation. Workers can help train the algorithms or handle QA and exceptions if the algorithmic quality does not achieve the necessary level. Low confidence results from algorithms can be resolved by moderation.
  • Moderation can be done ‘in-band’ in which the content item is not posted until the moderation result has been received, or ‘out of band’ in which the content is immediately posted, and then withdrawn if the moderation judgement returns a failure.
