For a number of years now, police forces around the world have enlisted officers to pose as kids in online chat rooms, in an attempt to draw out pedophiles and track them down.
Researchers at Spain’s University of Deusto are now hoping to free those cops up for other duties, and to catch more offenders, via a chatbot that they’ve created.
When Negobot first enters into a chat room conversation, it starts at level 0, in which it’s neutral.
If the person doesn’t appear to be interested in talking to the chatbot, it gets more insistent about having a conversation, by introducing topics that will hopefully capture their attention. It’s also possible, of course, that the person could be very interested in chatting Negobot up.
@Weeb But wouldn't it be better if all these companies actually made a more concerted effort to inform people that these features exist?
Sure, these things do get bad reports, which paints the system or service in a negative light, but there are tools there to protect the children.
So the "College Girl" started to cringe and get annoyed.
She change the subject so fast to private peep show and having fun.
As a adult myself, can take care of myself but children is different. Your network is all over the news, but the story isn't PSN is the place to play games this summer; Instead it's "An innocent game of Fifa has gone awry, Billy was working on his corner kick when he received messages from "Sally"" The Xbox One and PS4 have parental controls, hell I'm pretty positive the 360 had them too.
With the family controls it gets even more granular, setting hours they can play, who they can speak to etc etc.
But nowadays, there are too many stupid people who just act like it won't be a problem for them or their children.
This may have been the case back in the days before the internet, where it was highly unlikely some of the bad stuff you heard about was ever going to affect you, but in today's information age, the chances one will be targeted, and the ease with which it can be done, and the relatively large number of people who don't take basic measures to protect themselves just exasberbate a problem which is generally being ignored.
