Tens of thousands of apps with inappropriate content were taken down past year as a result of such improved detection methods. The apps submitted for approval are tested with improved machine learning models, and are flagged for potential violations.

The celebration of "Wear Red Day" continued later on where Unity Point Health St. Lukes also had Mayor Bob Scott for their own reading of the Proclamation.
