AI, has started to play a prominent part in child sexual abuse investigations, by helping to recognize, categorize and triage material. This technology is currently mostly used by law enforcement, however industry is now developing AI to recognize online child sexual abuse material.

Great points Marija! COVID-19 pandemic has increased the risk of online sexual exploitation of children. Attendees wanting to learn more can find IJM's brief online: https://osec.ijm.org/news/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/2020-09-IJM-COVID-19-OSEC-Brief_-9.5.2020.pdf
Danielle Alice Desanges Aucéane THIAM de GOGUENHEIM
01:03:05
The scope of what AI can assist with in child sexual abuse investigations is huge. In the near future the hope is that AI will be able to analyze wider portions of data, images, ID, voice recognition...
Dushica Naumovska
01:03:44
Thank you Marija for mentioning the European Privacy Directive. We all should write to our MPs and make them aware of the need for tech companies to scan their platforms to identify known CSAM.

Thank you for your question. Please submit it in the Q&A tab.
Danielle Alice Desanges Aucéane THIAM de GOGUENHEIM
01:08:07
Completely agree John and thanks.another challenge is perfecting things like face recognition. The algorithm reads mature faces better than young ones, which in the scope of child sexual offence and Victim ID needs to change.
John Tanagho

Hello Sharon Pursey of SafeToNet!
Justin McCall
01:10:05
It seems like the AI for identifying the threat at the camera would be a result of a number of data points coming together on the surrounding environment. And doing that might make sense to start training a model to understand those patterns at the server/storage level wehre that material is found, so that it can then learn the correlations for when someone is using a camera for child abuse purposes. Would love to talk on that and be happy to hand over the IP on whatever code we develop to help.
Odhran Mc Carthy
01:18:13
Perfect observation: human has to be involved at some stage
Ludovico Novelli
01:20:10
wow John! such a brilliant and longsighted proposal. Avoiding explicit content being generated in first place (I'd block them at OS level rather then camera level... much more maintenable). If you already manage to have Microsoft, Google and Apple approve such low-level OS modification, you could prevent a great percentage of cases. As a computer vision engineer, I have no doubt this can be achieved technologically, with high accuracy. Would love to help!
Joanna Rubinstein
01:25:02
and not much can be done unless we invest REAL money
John Tanagho
01:26:24
Thanks, Ludovico. Would love to hear more and connect you with SafeToNet. It is totally doable and I agree the OS is most feasible--also there's less companies to convince (Apple, Android) instead of hundreds or more device manufacturers.

Great points, Yalda! Big tech must do more. IJM's OSEC study recommends that tech invest in improving proactive detection and robust reporting of these crimes. https://www.ijm.org/documents/studies/Final_OSEC-Public-Summary_05_20_2020.pdf

We at INHOPE use AI to process CSAM reports submitted to internet hotlines and make sure they are removed from the internet https://www.inhope.org/EN

The Aviator project is using AI to help law enforcement process reports that they receive from NCMEC - they have received from tech companies. - http://aviator.isfp.eu/
John Tanagho
01:33:25
On what Big tech is proposing to do better, see Project Protect announcement, with implementation being prepared: https://www.technologycoalition.org/2020/05/28/a-plan-to-combat-online-child-sexual-abuse/
John Tanagho
01:35:10
And see the Voluntary Principles - the key is for everyone including governments and civil society to hold tech accountable to these promises - actions must follow: https://www.justice.gov/opa/press-release/file/1256061/download
