!WOW! : ''' CHILD



ON THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY - The Global Founder Framers of !WOW! feel that an ever grave and growing global social problem : '' The ease of creating A.I. imagery of child sexual abuse stares us in the face.''

The World will do well to remember that on !WOW! our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate to face it. Our deepest honour and fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

Author Marianne Williamson speaks : ! It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who are we to be so brilliant, gorgeous, talented,  fabulous? Actually, who are we not to be?  We are a creation of Almighty God. And our  playing small doesn't serve the world !

The Global Founder Framers of !WOW! need to be reminded that they have light and something to offer, and that they didn't need to dim the light for anyone. Also, that power should be illuminated, expressed and given to whoever needs it.

!WOW! will help Mankind and you on your journey to remember to love yourself, to understand your light and love your light and not be afraid of it and give it to the world.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS IN THE UNITED STATES - and I hope the world over are bracing for an explosion of material  generated by artificial intelligence that realistically depicts children by sexual exploited - deepening the challenge of identifying victims and combating such abuse.

The concerns grew as Meta, a primary resource for the authorities inflaging sexually explicit content, has made it tougher to track criminals by encrypting its messaging service.

The complication underscores the tricky balance technology companies must strike in weighing privacy rights against children's safety. And the prospect of prosecuting that type of crime raises thorny questions of whether such images are illegal and what kind of recourse there may be for victims.

Congressional lawmakers have seized on some of those worries to press for more stringent safeguards, summoning technology executives last month to testify about their protections for children.

Fake, sexually explicit images of Taylor Swift, most likely generated by A.I. that flooded social media last month only highlighted the risks of such technology.

'' Creating sexually explicit images of children through the use of artificial intelligence is a particularly heinous form of online exploitation,'' said Steve Grocki, the chief of the U.S. Justice Department's child exploitation and obscenity section.

The ease of  A.I.technology means that perpetrators can create scores of images of children being sexually exploited or abused with a click of a button. Simply entering a prompt spits out realistic images, videos and text in minutes, yielding new images of actual children as well as explicit ones on children who do not actually exist.

These may include A.I.-generated material of babies and toddlers being raped; famous young children being sexually abused, according to a recent study from Britain; and routine class photos, adapted so all of the children are naked.

'' THE HORROR now before us is that  someone can take an image of a child from social media, from a high school page or from sporting event, and they can engage in what some have called ' nudification, ' '' said Dr. Michael Bourke, the former chief psychologist for the U.S. Marshals Servicewho has worked on sex offenses involving children for decades. Using A.I. to alter photos this way is becoming more common, he said.

The images are becoming indistinguishable from real ones, experts say, making it tough to identify an actual victim from a fake one.

 '' The investigations are way more challenging,'' said Lt. Robin Richards, the commander of the Los Angeles Police Department's Internet Crimes Against Children task force.

'' It takes time to investigate, and then once we are knee-deep in the investigation, it's A.I., and then what do we do with this going forward? ''

Law enforcement agencies, understaffed and underfunded, have already struggled to keep pace as rapid advances in technology have allowed child sexual abuse imagery to flourish at a startling rate.

Images and and videos, enabled by smartphone cameras, the dark web, social media and messaging applications, ricochet across the internet.

Only a fraction of the material that is known to be criminal is getting investigated. John Pizzuro, the head of Raven, a nonprofit organization that works with lawmakers and businesses to fight the sexual exploitation of children, said that over a recent 90-day period, law enforcement officials had linked nearly 100,000 I.P. addresses across the country to child sex abuse material.

[ An I.P. address is a unique sequence of numbers assigned to each computer or smartphone connected to the internet.]

Of those, fewer than 700 were being investigated, he said, because of chronic lack of funding.
