Advancing Project Arachnid: Global Notice System and Tailored Tools to Expedite the Removal of Child Sexual Abuse Material

Canadian Centre for Child Protection will advance its existing technological solution, Project Arachnid, to improve automated detection of child sexual abuse material. Project Arachnid is already processing tens of thousands of images per second, crawling sites across the web to detect and remove abuse material. By developing an automated multi-lingual global notification system – along with tailored tools to find and report images – Project Arachnid will use End Violence’s support to expedite the removal of child sexual abuse material across the world, and develop tools to find images on sites that traditionally make automated detection nearly impossible. Headquartered in Canada, this project has a global reach.
