YouTube plans to add more human moderators and increase its use of machine learning to cut down on content that violates the video-sharing site’s policies.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said in a blog post published Monday evening that the company will increase the number of employees reviewing content on the site to more than 10,000 in 2018. Wojcicki said it’s taking the lessons its learned in the past year tackling violent extremist content and applying it to other “problematic” content.

“Our goal is to stay one step ahead of bad actors, making it harder for policy-violating content to surface or remain on YouTube,” Wojcicki wrote in her blog post.
