Not the governments job. It's down to the parents to educate and supervise their children on the matter.

Expect to see AI given as the answer to all life's problems for the next year or two, until the whole shaky edifice comes crumbling down. Surely people can spot a inflating tech bubble by now?

That won't work well, if the kids come up with another, an adult's face holding into camera during the age check.

The first thing that came to mind reading the headline was a lyric from The Beastie Boys:

"Man, living at home is such a drag

Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Busted)"

Oh for the good ol' days of the secret stash ^_^

Another idiot idea from the least competent developed world government of them all.

Upload millions of faces alongside personal data and wait for the whole lot to get hacked. Which it will. Genius.

I wouldn't trust the British government to run a lemonade stand.

On average children first see online pornography at 13, while nearly a quarter come across it by age 11, and one in 10 as young as 9, a 2021-2022 study by the Office of the Children's Commissioner for England showed.

And sixty years ago how many boys that age were poking through their dad's "secret" ( lol ) stash of Playboy and similar magazines with their friends snickering over their shoulders? Not that I ever did that ............... O_O

The regulator described its suggestion on facial age estimation as using AI to analyze a viewer's features. That would likely require taking a selfie on a device and uploading it.

So, remember kids, NO taking a photo of dad, printing and cutting it out, and showing it to the camera. 'Cause that would be wrong, don't you know.

Only God knows I never thought of porn before I got 18...or maybe it was 8, I can't remember. Anyway, I thank my dad for leaving some biological culturae magazines here and there.

Use of AI for the management of a human behaviour ?

What a Brave new world coming !

All of those systems to verify it sound like a powder keg of bad ideas
