What you need to know
- Age limits: Check age limits concerning the AI technologies the young person in your care has access to. Decide whether they are mature enough to use these applications and have a conversation with them about safe use.
- Use content filters, parental controls and safety settings: Implementing functions like safe search filters and using your internet providers parental control features will help make your child’s online experiences with AI safer. Before using these safety settings, we recommend having a conversation with the young person in your care as to why these are necessary.
- Factual inaccuracies and misinformation: Generative AI such as Chat GPT largely depends on publicly available data and can occasionally generate incorrect information, misinformation or disinformation.
- AI generated harmful content: There are some AI technologies that have the ability to create images or audio based on a few words. Although this is useful in business, unfortunately this can result in the production of ‘deepfakes*’ which has potentially harmful consequences.
