Google opened its Safety Engineering Center in Dublin, Ireland, on Wednesday, which will moderate and remove harmful online content. The move is designed to quell regulatory concerns against tech giants such as Facebook and Google.
- The European Union introduced new regulations to limit tech giants' powers and hold them accountable for moderating content posted on their platforms.
- Google's Director of Trust and Safety Amanda Storey said the hub's objective is to "tackle the spread of illegal and harmful content."
- The center is the first of its kind, and Dublin is home to Google's European headquarters.
- YouTube has decided to continue banning former President Trump from posting videos. YouTube first banned Trump on Jan. 12 "for violating our policies for inciting violence," over a video linked to the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
- YouTube announced it had suspended Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani from its ad-sharing program for repeatedly spreading election misinformation. The ban went into place last week and will remain in place for 30 days.
