In Part 1 of this two part series, we will discuss all about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is utilized to create apps and games that kids use everyday. In Part 2, we will look at how tech companies are using AI to solve crimes, identify sex buyers and pedophiles, and locate and rescue victims of child sexual abuse. Google Maps drives by your house and stores the photo(s), address and physical information of your home. When your child uses Tik Tok to make a video, it is tied to their location, public profile, and mobile phone number. IBM scrapes public photos off the web by the millions. Apps and sites like Facebook, Amazon, and Instagram are storing and selling your every click, search and location. The real challenge here is that we are putting very young kids in the world of AI, and making them available to literally millions of strangers and VERY LITTLE is being done to educate them about the dangers. It is one of the greatest societal experiments of all time.
