New smartphone app automatically deletes children’s nude selfies -- Jul 05
To prevent sexual exploitation, a smartphone app has been developed in Japan that automatically deletes children’s nude selfies.

Using artificial intelligence, this smartphone app was created in response to the sharp increase in adults contacting children through social media in order to have them send naked pictures.

The project was developed through a collaboration between Tokyo-based app developer Smartbooks Inc, Fujita Health University in Aichi Prefecture, and Nagoya’s local police station.

In addition to deleting nude photos it deems sexually exploitative, the app warns children’s guardians.

Public access to the app is expected to be available by the end of the year.
