marinomsat February 05,2015 This I believe is one of the worse cyber crime that occurs. The damage done to these children is horrendous. I think that posing and patrolling the sites as fake children is a great way to fish out the criminals. The fact that this is a hard crime to track evidence on is sad because the way it is affecting these children every day.
skatakamat February 05,2015 This looks like a combination of Honey pot and Social Engineering to locate the culprits across the globe. Passing strict laws along with such techniques will surely help stopping this crime. Just signing the petition doesn't speed up the things.police are already very involved in such things.There is a conference every year in Dallas,Texas devoted to this kind of work. All the anti-abuse community attend to this program.
kcn278at February 12,2015 I don't understand how men are that deeply interested in child pornography. Logging in and profiling as a child then being swarmed by hundreds if not thousands is baffling. I like the idea by marinoms of the possibility of AIs to automate offenders. I honestly would like to watch an interview of one of these child predators.
nbodykat February 22,2015 I don't understand how so many men can get into child pornography. Recently women are starting to get into this in lesser numbers. What's really wrong is that there are people out there taking advantage of these children and making them interact with these pedophiles on line. It's pretty disturbing that the global society doesn't see anything wrong in this as long as they can hide behind the anonymity of the Internet or some other forum. The Internet didn't start child pornography after all, it just helped child pornography reach a larger audience. I applaud organizations like Terres Des Hommes for taking on this issue. The creation of Sweetie was ingenious and to use her to occupy these criminals while the organization tracks down their identity to turn them over to Interpol is an excellent idea. Handing over the list to Interpol is a good thing so these creeps can get caught. This past year the FBI has arrested hundreds of people in child pornography stings, but unfortunately you know there is more of these people out there. I will say that I could tell right away that Sweetie wasn't a real child. The computer generates a very good lifelike model, but if you look at it you know it's computer generated. I guess these pedophiles don't pay enough attention to detail to catch this.
connellytat February 25,2015 That was a well done video on a disturbing topic. I was surprised that people do think Sweetie is a real child. While the graphics are really well done, I don't think the technology is at a place where you can easily mistake her for a real person.
