In the NetClean Report 2018 we looked at a relatively new technology called Deepfakes; AI technology, which is used to swap one face for another in moving imagery. Here, Christian Berg, founder of NetClean, elaborates on challenges that this technology presents, and what might prevent it from being widely used in the production of child sexual abuse material.
Last week I was invited as a member of the Working Group for Child Online Safety, to attend the ITU/UNESCO Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development annual Spring meeting in Silicon Valley.
In our experience it is extremely rare that child sexual abuse material is sold on the internet. Offenders either search for the readily available free material, or they trade images and films with each other.
In this series of blogs, we discuss tools that aid investigators and online service providers, Unlike the tools we have previously covered, AI has the potential to identify new and previously unclassified child sexual abuse material.
Michael Sheath from the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, a UK charity that runs a helpline for people with concerns about negative aspects of their sexuality, comments on findings from the NetClean Report.
In a recent interview conducted at the #skillnadpåriktigt conference, Björn Sellström from INTERPOL mentioned that only six countries comprehensively address online child sexual abuse.
Throughout the year we will be sharing insights from our NetClean Report 2018. First out is the introduction penned by Dr. Victoria Baines who reflects on the fight against child sexual abuse as it enters its third decade. Read about how technological development has far outstripped our expectations, and how collaboration and knowledge is setting the agenda in the fight against child sexual abuse.
Using crawling and hashing technologies to find child sexual abuse material – The Internet Watch Foundation
In our series on technologies that are used to stop child sexual abuse, we have written about how they work and what they are used for. Following our blogs on web crawlers and hash matching, this post looks at how the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) uses these technologies.
