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.

Now Comes Artificial Intelligence (AI)-Designed Perfumes For Sale

The company also plans to introduce "Philyra" into their Perfumery School to help train the next generation of perfumers, firmly embedding AI into the heart of its organisation

Artificial Intelligence now helps design novel perfumes.

Tech major IBM and Symrise, one of the top global producers of flavours and fragrances, have created industry’s first Artificial Intelligence (AI)-designed perfumes for sale.

The AI-based system named “Philyra” can learn about perfume formulas, raw materials, historical success data and industry trends, IBM Research said in a statement late on Saturday.

“Building on previous IBM research using AI to pair flavours and for recipe creation, as well as our new IBM Research AI for Product Composition, we created Philyra,” said Richard Goodwin, Principal Research Scientist, IBM Research.

The AI tool uses new and advanced Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to sift through hundreds of thousands of formulas and thousands of raw materials, helping identify patterns and novel combinations.

“Philyra does more than serve up inspiration – it can design entirely new fragrance formulas by exploring the entire landscape of fragrance combinations to discover the whitespaces in the global fragrance market,” Goodwin added.

When it comes to new perfume design, “Philyra” learns a distance model to identify fragrances that are close in smell to existing fragrances.

AI scenarios present ethical issues ranging from privacy, human rights, employment or other social issues.

The larger the distance between a fragrance and its neighbours, the more novel the perfume is predicted to be.

Symrise has used “Philyra” to design two perfumes, scheduled to launch in mid-2019.

Symrise’s long-term goal is to introduce this technology to their master perfumers around the globe and continue to use the solution for the design of fragrances for personal care and home care products.

“Our research continues to push the boundaries of augmenting human expertise using AI and demonstrating how AI can assist in domains where creativity is key,” said Goodwin. (IANS)
