Google announced on Monday (3) an initiative that bets on artificial intelligence to accelerate the detection of pedophilia-related materials on the Internet. The new technology uses neural networks prepared to recognize images and videos of abused children and thus streamline the work of people who review these pages manually or from simpler systems. The tool will be made available free of charge to entities dedicated to combating pedophilia.
With the use of artificial intelligence, the expectation is to expand the search for content never seen before and related to a pattern of sexual abuse of minors. According to Google, the enabled tool is able to find up to 700% more results on pedophilia compared to the current process.
