London, December 4, 2016: Artificial intelligence software developed by the scientists can automatically detect new child sexual abuse photos and videos online networks and it help to prosecute offenders.

According to PTI report, “There are hundreds of searches for child abuse images every second worldwide, resulting in hundreds of thousands of child sexual abuse images and videos being shared every year.”


Researchers said, “The people who produce child sexual abuse media are often abusers themselves, including those from Lancaster University in the UK.”

“Spotting newly produced media online can give law enforcement agencies the fresh evidence they need to find and prosecute offenders,” they said.

The new toolkit automatically detects the new or previously unknown child sexual abuse media with the use of artificial intelligence.

Author Claudia Peersman from Lancaster University said, “Identifying new child sexual abuse media is critical because it can indicate recent or ongoing child abuse.”

Peersman said, “And because originators of such media can be hands-on abusers, their early detection and apprehension can safeguard their victims from further abuse.”

To help law enforcement agents there are already a number of tools available to monitor peer-to-peer networks for child sexual abuse media, but they mainly rely on identifying known media.

Therefore, these tools cannot assess the thousands of results they retrieve and are unable to spot new media that appear.

According to PTI, “The Identifying and Catching Originators in P2P (iCOP) Networks toolkit uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to flag new and previously unknown child sexual abuse media.”

In an intelligent filtering module, the new approach combines automatic filename and media analysis techniques. The software can now easily identify the new criminal media and differentiate it from other media being shared, like adult pornography.

Since the new system can actually reveal who is sharing known child sexual abuse media, and also will show other files that are shared by those people, it will be very useful to law enforcers.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
