Facebook asks for nude photos from Australian users to combat 'revenge porn'

According to Facebook's Head of Global Safety, Antigone Davis, the pilot is an industry first, which builds on the non-consensual intimate images AI tool that the company announced in April. Adults who have shared nude or sexually explicit photos with someone online, and who are anxious about unauthorised distribution, can report images to the Australian government's eSafety Commission.

She explained: "Revenge porn is becoming such a huge epidemic among young people, it's absolutely frightful and if there's any way to tackle it then we should take that seriously". Past systems have been outsmarted before by simply altering the images to look slightly different or applying filters to distort the images.
