Project Artemis is a rating based system that after going through the conversation determines the probability of the user being a child sex predator trying to exploit any children online. The system then assigns a rating to the users. According to a statistics there were around 4.48 billion children’s were active around the world and most of them were teenagers. It is an open based application and can be implemented by any company, for example if the score is between 1-10, the conversation will be sent to a human moderator for reviews so that the person could be identified and law enforcement agency could be identified. According to the Microsoft’s chief digital security officer Courtney Gregoire, Project Artemis will provide information about the different ways child pedophiles operate online.
