yes it would be nice to know when a minor is pretending to be an adult. Minors do pretend to be an adults online! Then the police show up at your house a year and a half later with a search warrant and haul you off to prision because a minor fraudulently pretended to be an adult.

I am confused…. just how would the algorithm get access to the conversation? Do people have these exchanges on public forums? Like reddit, or here, or some such? In that case…. stupid is as stupid does.

For those conversations conducted via email or some private messenger service – how does the tool get access to those?

God help us all.

So this means Coalinga Hospital can start excepting patients right from the get-go…we should not wait for a crime to happen, we should not wait for a speedy trial, do not collect your innocence, go straight to Coalinga!

We do live in a police state and every day bits of freedom is being taken away from us!

This post tells me and should Tell All of you! This is wire tapping on people Which I Think is very illegal In the USA > It is a federal crime to wiretap or to use a machine to capture the communications of others without court approval, unless one of the parties has given their prior consent. It is likewise a federal crime to use or disclose any information acquired by illegal wiretapping or electronic eavesdropping. So I think someone Should Sue the pants off those Crimes

Pre-Crime? So Phillip K. Dick was right all those years ago.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
