Nanniebots seek paedophiles

Posted by malcolm on Thursday, March 18th, 2004 at 18:59

Software agents dubbed nanniebots are being unleashed on children’s chatrooms to talk to children and sniff out paedophiles. The agents, a form of artificial intelligence also known as “Eliza programs”, mimic a child’s chat conversation but also analyse the discussion for telltale signs the child they are talking to is also an online predator.

With over 770 members connecting from over 76 different countries worldwide, LINX members have access to direct routes from a large number of diverse international peering partners.
