Britain to go high tech! Likely to use AI to verify the age of user before accessing PORN sites

AI to verify the age: The recently enacted Online Safety Act in Britain mandates that websites and applications that show or distribute pornographic material make sure that children are not typically exposed to it on their platform. In Britain, you have to be at least 18 years old to see porn. In an effort to prevent kids from viewing pornography online, the British government unveiled new age-check guidelines on Tuesday. One of the recommendations is to employ artificial intelligence (AI) to determine whether a viewer appears to be of legal age.

Institute of Economic Affairs on this idea

Mandatory age verification, according to the free-market think group Institute of Economic Affairs, would increase the quantity of sensitive data collected by third parties, endangering user privacy and leaving users vulnerable to exploitation. Weaker techniques, like self-declaration of age, online payment methods that don’t require identification, and disclaimers or warnings, won’t be able to meet the requirements of the regulator’s new guidance, it stated.

AI to verify the age: What is the need behind this; Explained by CEO of media regulator

CEO of the media regulator Ofcom Melanie Dawes explained that the proposal for facial age estimation involves analysing a viewer’s traits using artificial intelligence. That would probably need you to take and publish a selfie with a gadget. The watchdog added credit card checks and picture identification matching to its proposed guidelines, which would require users to upload a photo ID to establish their age, such as a passport or driver’s licence. Open banking was another recommendation, in which customers agree to let their bank share information with internet porn sites to verify they are at least 18 years old.
