Safer Internet Day 2024: Artificial Intelligence (AI) risks and opportunities for children and young peopleGreek Safer Internet Centre
To mark Safer Internet Day 2024, the Greek Safer Internet Centre draws attention to the dangers of using emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), especially by underage users. Cases have already become known where minors, using AI applications, have altered photographs of underage girls and started to share them 'for fun', as they said afterwards. Today, the majority of the 'deepfake' material circulating on the internet is non-consensual pornography. In other words, videos of pornographic material appear where the face has been replaced. Usually, the victims are celebrities, but anyone can become a victim. The whole issue raises great concerns about privacy on the Internet, and unfortunately, it can turn any individual into a potential victim, regardless of their gender. Parents and teachers must talk to children and adolescents about the consequences of this practice.
