We all want to protect our children online — and AI is proving to be an incredibly effective tool for doing just that. So, how exactly can you use AI to eliminate crimes like child pornogrophy and human trafficking?
If a child is missing and officials suspect the child is being trafficked, there’s a 75% chance they’re being sold online. But, if the only option detectives have is to scroll through ad after ad, they are wasting valuable time to find the missing child. With AI facial recognition technology, on the other hand, a computer can do a much quicker search and identify the closest matches. Now, police can quickly recover the child and build a case against the trafficker instead of wasting precious time scrolling.
In this episode of She Said Privacy/He Said Security, Jodi and Justin Daniels sit down with Lisa Thee, the lead for Launch Consulting Group’s Data for Good practice, to talk about using AI to protect children online. Lisa explains how AI can speed up criminal research, her tips for protecting your children’s privacy and security, and how to better collaborate as a society to combat human trafficking.
