  1. YouTube has faced heavy criticism over what some believe is an inadequate level of protection for young users. Though the company has already taken a number of steps to shield young eyes from inappropriate videos, including launching a special app for kids, it plans to take things a step farther by using its artificial intelligence technology to automatically age-restrict videos that are detected as inappropriate for users under the age of 18. Embedding the content in third-party websites won’t get around the restriction, either. YouTube detailed its plan to expand the use of
  2. Kids Can Get Covid-19. They Just Don't Get That Sick New data suggests that children aren’t immune to the new coronavirus. That could have huge implications for efforts to contain local outbreaks. Photograph: Getty Images The outbreak of a new virus always breeds confusion. Where did it come from? How does it spread? How dangerous is it? Ten weeks into the Covid-19 epidemic, enough information has emerged to start filling in some of these gaps. Scientists beli
  3. A team of researchers has developed a high accuracy deep learning-based classifier designed to detect YouTube videos with disturbing content for kids. This was done after finding that the current recommendation algorithm used by the platform to suggest related content is quite lacking. The research was prompted by the increasing number of young children who have their attention drawn to more modern video consumption platforms such as Google's YouTube, which provides almost limitless amounts of toddler-tailored content. Although most of it is accurately categ
  4. Tech Will Save Us (TWSU), the company behind cool kids' STEM kits, has launched a new flagship product designed to get kids into game design. The Arcade Coder is a 12-inch by 12-inch board with 144 fully programmable and controllable multi-colored LED buttons, that teaches children aged six and over easy-to-learn block coding and how to design their own games. It helps kids get to grips with game mechanics such as speed, levels and poi
  5. European media service provider Spotify announced today that it has created a standalone music-streaming app designed specifically for children. Duly christened Spotify Kids, the new application will be available exclusively to members of the Spotify Premium Family subscription plan. Members will not be charged any extra costs to access the new application, the monthly subscription fee is inclusive of Spotify Kids in addition to the usual six individual accounts provided by the plan. All content on the platform is filtered and handpicked to ensure that it is family-friendly and app
  6. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that whatever you do on Facebook eventually comes back to you in the form of targeted ads. It turns out, however, that Facebook’s advertising tools have also marked hundreds of thousands of children as interested in gambling and alcohol, opening them up to some not-so-great advertisements. A joint investigation by The Guardian and the Danish Broadcasting Corporation found that 740,000 children under 18 years old are flagged in Facebook’s ad tools as being interested in gambling. Another 940,000 are marked as interested in alcoholic drink
  7. The government is cracking down, so the rules are changing. The burden of those rules, however, is on the creators. David Graham (www.dpgatlaw.com) is a lawyer who has represented clients creating content for YouTube and other platforms since 2011, and has been a prominent commentator in the fighting game community since 2010. YouTube is an alluring place to make money, but one where power is distributed unevenly, and where the individual creator is often at the whims of corporations and policies that change on a moment’s notice. 2019 has been no dif
  8. In a world of digital payments, parents need to be deliberate in teaching their kids about money An updated version of the classic board game Monopoly has done away with cash entirely and now uses a voice-activated AI banker instead. Hasbro announced Wednesday it will release a version of the classic board game Monopoly designed for the digital age. But financial experts argue the game’s new design could deprive children of important financial lessons. In Hasbro’s latest edition of Monopoly, gone are the paper money a
  9. They’re especially concerned with a recent security flaw in Messenger Kids. Senators are questioning Facebook again. This time their concerns are related to a design flaw that let thousands of kids join group chats with unauthorized users, The Verge reports. Senators Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) wrote a letter to Mark Zuckerberg today, asking whether Facebook has done enough to protect children's online safety. Last month, a report by The Verge revealed the design flaw in Me
  10. At first glance, it is an unlikely match: on the one side, Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI), or neuro-computing — so-called “exponential technologies,” defined as technologies that develop exponentially fast, with power and speed doubling and cost dropping by half every year. On the other side, the pre-kindergarten kids enrolled in Head Start programs across the U.S. who benefit from early childhood education and comprehensive health and community services for the most vulnerable children and their families. Moonshots catapulting
  11. Social media giants like Facebook should be forced to release their “insidious grip” on young people, the head of the NHS has said. Backing The Telegraph’s campaign for a “duty of care” to web users, Simon Stevens said such firms should face up to their responsiblities, fuelling pressures on today’s children. Last month the chief executive of NHS England promised a “major ramp-up” of mental health services, in order to deal with the fallout for an explosion of social media. Today he urged social media companies to get their house in order, by doing more to p
