Google APL To Help Organizations Fight Child Abuse Online

Today, the API is being used by NGOs like SafeNet Brazil and companies including Facebook and Yubo

In its effort to fight child sexual abuse online, Google helped its partners classify more than 2 billion images in 2020, thus identifying the small fraction of violative content faster and with more precision and tackle illegal content referred to as child sexual abuse material (CSAM). In 2018, Google developed and launched the Content Safety API.

“Using AI classifiers we built for our own products, the API helps organizations classify and prioritize the most likely CSAM content for review,” Google said in a statement on Wednesday.

Today, the API is being used by NGOs like SafeNet Brazil and companies including Facebook and Yubo. CSAI Match is a technology developed by YouTube engineers to identify re-uploads of previously identified child sexual abuse in videos. “We use both hash-matching software like CSAI Match and machine learning classifiers that can identify never-before-seen CSAM imagery,” Google said.
