Microsoft collaborated to develop anti-grooming technology, known as “Project Artemis,” which it has made freely available to other online service companies through the non-profit Thorn. Project Artemis evaluates written text—for example, in-game chats—to determine whether the text demonstrates a series of characteristics that suggest wrongdoing. A key benefit of the technology is that it does not rely on the player to flag or report an issue. This is crucial in the case of grooming where a child might not understand what is happening or might be reluctant to report it. Project Artemis will continue to improve as more companies deploy it.
