NCA estimates one in 50 men poses risk to children as AI threatens to exacerbate radicalising effect of internet

Artificial intelligence could further fuel an epidemic of child sexual abuse, Britain’s top law enforcement agency has warned, as it said that one in every 50 men pose a risk to children.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) estimates that up to 830,000 adults – 1.6% of the adult population – represent some degree of sexual danger to children, a figure labelled “extraordinary” by its director general, Graeme Biggar. He added that online abuse images were having a “radicalising” effect that “normalised” such behaviour.
