Many adults often take pictures of their naked bodies and send them to their partners. a study conducted in 2014 showed that just under 50% of American adults have sent nude photos (or videos).
Now the Japanese company Tone claims to have developed the world's first smartphone called Tone e20 that will use "the power of artificial intelligence" to automatically detect and block the sending of images of this type on the device. According to the company, the device's image detection algorithm works on photos and videos.
The Tone e20 comes with the Android 9 operating system, has a 6.26-inch screen with a resolution of 1520 x 720 and comes equipped with an eight-core chip and a 2GHz clock, 64GB of storage capacity, 4GB of RAM, three cameras rear (13MP, 12MP and 2MP) and an 8MP front camera for selfies.
The highlight of the device is the Smartphone Protection software, which uses artificial intelligence to block the capture / sending of nudes. If you take a photo and the phone's image processing algorithm suspects it is nude, it will prevent that photo from being saved to the device.
The feature aims to protect young people in Japan by preventing them from taking photos that could make others take advantage of it – for example, a photo of this type can be used to blackmail a young woman who has broken up with her boyfriend.
The e20 can also connect to someone else's phone so that it can alert a parent or guardian if their child tries to take an inappropriate photo. Tone's new cell phone is only available on the Japanese market for 19,800 yen (about $ 180).
