Posted in: Meta turns to AI to protect minors from 'sextortion' on Instagram See in context

This makes absolutely no sense.

Meta said on Thursday it was developing new tools to protect teenage users from "sextortion" scams on its Instagram platform, which has been accused by U.S. politicians of damaging the mental health of youngsters.

Gangs run sextortion scams by persuading people to provide explicit images of themselves and then threatening to release them to the public unless they receive money.

Meta said it was testing an AI-driven "nudity protection" tool that would find and blur images containing nudity that were sent to minors on the app's messaging system.

"This way, the recipient is not exposed to unwanted intimate content and has the choice to see the image or not," Capucine Tuffier, who is in charge of child protection at Meta France, told AFP.

If the problem is that youngsters are being persuaded to send explicit images of themselves (they themselves are sending them out), how does limiting what images they receive do anything at all to protect them from this? The images in question are ones they already have, they're the ones who took them?

Posted in: Honestly, I have big doubts if Mr Kishida, who is pursuing a military buildup and seeking to revise the pacifist constitution, can really discuss nuclear disarmament. See in context

Anyone serious about nuclear disarmament would not have chosen to represent the same political party as Abe Shinzo, who personally wanted to obtain these weapons. Ergo, Kishida is not serious about nuclear disarmament.

 you have to look at countries with subpar health care and reporting to get to significantly lower deaths than Japan.

Yes, interesting to find Japan among the "subpar reporting" bracket. Why, oh why could that be?
