Threat of AI-Generated Child Sexual Abuse Material

A new flood of child sexual abuse material created by artificial intelligence is posing a significant threat, overwhelming authorities already hindered by outdated technology and laws, as highlighted in a report by Stanford University’s Internet Observatory released on Monday.

Challenges Faced by National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the key agency in combating child exploitation online, is struggling due to the surge in AI-generated explicit images of children. The organization’s resources, including the CyberTipline, are insufficient to cope with the escalating threat.

Legal and Technological Implications

With the rise of AI technologies facilitating the creation of realistic abusive content, law enforcement faces mounting challenges in identifying real victims among the AI-generated material. The legal landscape around AI-generated child sexual abuse material is complex, where distinguishing between illegal content containing real children and synthetically made images remains a pressing issue.
