Description

Two years ago, a multipart Times investigation highlighted an epidemic of child sexual abuse material which relied on platforms run by the world’s largest technology companies.

Last week, Apple revealed its solution — a suite of tools which includes an update to the iPhone’s operating system that allows for the scanning of photographs.

That solution, however, has ignited a firestorm over privacy in Silicon Valley.

Guest: Jack Nicas, a technology reporter for The New York Times.
