Asking the Unattainable?
Are we here in agreement that, alone, software solutions for preventing/mitigating CSEA are not sufficient? In other words, human action is required. Well, who does <insert do-gooder here> expect to do this? Or do they believe this is solvable with technology alone?
I tried to find sources that indicate (eg) PhotoDNA can not be bypassed by modifying an image (cropping/inverting/changing-colours etc) to mismatch against the stored hashes (of known offending material). I didn't find any. Is the source available? Doubt that very much.
It's further obvious that false claims can be made against innocents, both in good faith and maliciously (to make their life hell).
I'm repeating this quote from the other day, it's too pertinent:
Looking forward 20 years, I'm quite certain that the coming of the computer will have a significant effect on all businesses and most private lives. Whether these effects will be fully favorable, as they could be, or in-part harmful, will depend on whether those that make policy decisions are aware of what computers can do and what they cannot do.
