Machine learning tools and techniques to fight child sexual exploitation
The distribution of child sexual exploitation materials is an abhorrent crime. Online service providers' and users’ suspicious material detection technologies are improving. However, the huge amount of referrals collected by law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in combination with limited human resources, manual analysis and the 4 000 % increase in referrals since 2014 prevent their investigative capacity. The EU-funded GRACE project will apply proven techniques in machine learning to the referral and analysis elaboration while appropriately managing the technical, ethical and legal challenges unique to fighting child sexual exploitation. The project will use resources from EUROPOL and its nine Member State LEAs to provide early, frequent and flexible results that will be handed back to EUROPOL and Member State LEAs, helping to ensure their future technological autonomy.
