Facebook wants you to send in your nude pictures… to stop 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.

It's definitely worth thinking about how to hack proof your life but the good news is that Facebook are finally climbing onboard, too.

The technology is used to help prevent child pornography and by internet companies to block terrorist images. This would prevent the images or videos from being reposted later by anyone other than the content owner.

Julie Inman Grant, e-Safety Commissioner, told ABC " we see many scenarios where maybe photos or video were taken consensually at one point, but there was not any sort of consent to send images or videos more broadly", Grant continued by saying, "they're not storing the image.

Not only will this team mean issues like this will be dealt with faster, but this new photo-recognition technology that Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is putting into place will be able to find any reproductions of the offensive photos and delete them all.

Once that happens, Facebook's analysts "hash" the image, storing a unique fingerprint which prevents further instances being uploaded and shared. The measure is created to block users from sharing a photo before it can do harm.

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.
