The AiLECS Lab is proud to present a screening of the documentary film The Children in the Pictures at Monash University on Thursday 2 June. The film goes inside the world-renowned Taskforce Argos, exploring their work in rescuing children from online sexual exploitation.   The film will be introduced by its co-director Simon Nasht, one of Australia’s most experienced documentary filmmakers.

In conjunction with the screening, we are hosting a panel session that will explore the interplay between rights to privacy and online safety.

Our panelists are:
