Keeping Children Safe in the Age of AI: Examining the risks and benefits of AI for CSE

June 23, 2023

Our June 2023 Brown Bag event covered the key topic of artificial intelligence (AI) which is currently in the spotlight due to its wide applications across aspects of life such as business, education and law enforcement.

Our presenter, Colm Gannon discussed the regulatory landscape, the risks and the potential harms of AI, especially in the case of child sexual exploitation (CSE) and child sexual abuse material (CSAM). Colm is an AI/Machine Learning expert, working as a Product Manager with Irish technology company, Rigr AI. He has over 20 years’ experience in Law Enforcement, involved in national and international investigations and prosecutions relating to online harms, child sexual abuse and exploitation, violent extremism, and harmful online communications.

Colm’s presentation examined the impacts that AI is having on the generation of CSAM and ways that AI can be positively, safely and successfully applied by law enforcement and the financial services industries in the detection, reporting and prosecution of CSE.
