THE MEET GROUP - Jan 30 - Many well-respected tech companies came together to form a consortium called Project Artemis, a multi-year, multi-company effort for a multi-faceted text-based analysis system designed to detect child grooming. Teenagers sometimes masquerade as adults. Artemis is an A.I. system that relies on a database of common textual patterns derived from confirmed child predator conversations. The flexible design allows companies to incorporate their custom detection methods into it so multiple industries can use it. The database of common textual patterns employed by child predators was compiled using data from multiple companies and platforms. The modular architecture of Artemis permits adaptation and expansion based on the needs of different platforms, which allows platforms like The Meet Group to add features and functionality to it. The Meet Group added real-time processing functionality and support for profile metadata as well as two NLP algorithms. These additions improve Artemis for all companies who use it. The Meet Group believe Artemis is an essential component of any social-oriented company's predator detection toolkit and commend Microsoft on its openness in broadly sharing this capability across the industry to protect children everywhere.
