Which one works best?

There are four basic methods used to categorize and filter Internet content...

Let's take a look at some of the Positives and Negatives of each method...


Manual: Positives

Manual: Negatives

There are no longer any quality solutions that rely solely on the Manual method.  All modern solutions rely (at least to some degree) on Automated or Dynamic content recognition.

 


Automated: Positives

Automated: Negatives

There are a few solutions available that rely solely on the Automatic method. Unfortunately, the current state-of-the-art is, in our opinion, still not good enough to eliminate manual (human) review. It is possible that a quality Automatic-only solution will become available in the future, and we constantly evaluate new product offerings. Currently, there are no products based solely on this method that we can recommend.

 


Automated-plus-Manual: Positives

Automated-plus-Manual: Negatives

This is the preferred method used by the leading providers. It combines the strengths of both the Automated and Manual methods. Automated computer programs handle the sheer volume of new content, preprocess the results for the humans, who then provide the Manual final review to ensure correct categorization.

 


Dynamic: Positives

Dynamic: Negatives

There are several solutions available that rely solely on the Dynamic method. Unfortunately, in our opinion, none of them are yet accurate enough to eliminate manual (human) review. Currently, there are no products based solely on this method that we can recommend.
