Microsoft’s Project Artemis will Protect Kids from Creeps Online

Being a parent in this day and age can be scary. And I can’t watch my children at all times, ready to pounce on creeps, breaking both their arms and leaving at the side of a road for dead. Luckily Microsoft has my back.

Below, Microsoft details Project Artemis, from their official blog.

“In furtherance of those commitments, today Microsoft is sharing a grooming detection technique, code name “Project Artemis,” by which online predators attempting to lure children for sexual purposes can be detected, addressed and reported. Developed in collaboration with The Meet Group, Roblox, Kik and Thorn, this technique builds off Microsoft patented technology and will be made freely available via Thorn to qualified online service companies that offer a chat function. Thorn is a technology nonprofit that builds technology to defend children from sexual abuse.

The wife and I are always concerned when the kiddos go online. At least there are tools being built to help parents protect their kids from the sickos.
