Crisp Thinking is going to use Scotland Yard pedophile data to enhance the performance of its Crisp NetModerator software. NetModerator will use real conversations between convicted pedophiles and undercover officers to help identify and shield children from predatory behavior in virtual worlds and child-oriented MMOs. Crisp Thinking says it is the first company in the space to use real Metropolitan Police data to test and enhance its product's performance.
Crisp NetModerator is currently used by companies including Sony Online Entertainment and Turner Broadcasting Systems to monitor user behavior in virtual worlds and online games for children. It will now use a "profiling engine," verified through use of the police pedophile data, to spot interaction patterns typical of a child predator online. This profiling engine will be steadily updated through use of fresh data on an ongoing basis to ensure the best possible protection.
"The priority of the Metropolitan Police Paedophile Unit is to safeguard children by disrupting criminality, investigating offences to a point of conviction and educating all of society. It is important for the Metropolitan Police to have partnerships with companies such as Crisp Thinking to assist in the development of online child protection solutions such as Crisp NetModerator," said Detective Superintendent Graham Grant, Head of the New Scotland Yard Pedophile Unit, in a press statement.
