Google Refines AI To Detect And Report Child Sexual Abuse Material Online

Lately, the child abuse content online has become one of the menaces that we all need to fight with. In a similar attempt, Google has deployed its AI (Artificial Technology) technology to battle the curse of child sexual abuse material that is freely available online. The new AI from the tech giant will help the organizations to identify images that haven’t been previously cataloged.

The new cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) significantly advances the existing technologies to dramatically improve how service providers, NGOs, and other technology companies review this content at scale. By using deep neural networks for new image detection AI, these organizations can now assist reviewers in sorting through many images by prioritizing the most likely child sexual abuse material for review.  Quick identification of new images will help in finding children who are being sexually abused today and will be protected from further abuse.

Google has made this technology available for free to NGOs and industry partners via Content Safety API. It is a toolkit to multiplies the capacity to analyze content in a way that requires only a handful of people to be exposed to it. 

Susie Hargreaves OBE, CEO, Internet Watch Foundation, said: "We, and in particular our expert analysts, are excited about the development of an artificial intelligence tool which could help our human experts review material to an even greater scale and keep up with offenders, by targeting imagery that hasn’t previously been marked as illegal material. By sharing this new technology, the identification of images could be speeded up, which in turn could make the internet a safer place for both survivors and users." 

Since the early 2000s, the Google has been investing in technology, teams, and working closely with expert organizations, like the Internet Watch Foundation, to fight the spread of child sexual abuse material online.

Identifying and fighting the spread of child sexual abuse material is an ongoing challenge, and governments, law enforcement, and NGOs, all have a key role in protecting children from this horrific crime. Though technology alone is not a solution to this societal challenge, still technological innovations like Google’s new invention will surely help us to tackle abuses like child abuse.
