It may not be long before would-be sexual predators are being ensnared by virtual agent technologies.
A full discussion of Negobot’s technology and capabilities is described in an abstract about the conversational agent published by the creators.
You navigate through the game’s narrative by responding to the bot’s questions with keywords highlighted in the sext.
Last week there was news of a chatbot developed to ferret out suspected sexual predators of underaged victims.
Negobot analyzes the ongoing dialog and is aware of the level of ‘sliminess’ of the conversation.
It bases its responses on this knowledge and adjusts its strategy based on the level, all the while continuing to play the game of drawing out more information and damning conversational evidence from the suspected predator.
Babylon is one of a growing number of digital health start-ups offering a private GP service.
It offers consultation via video and chat features for a monthly subscription.
Laorden and his colleagues haven’t deployed Negobot into the real world yet, but they’re continuing to refine the chatbot.
A planned trial of a chat-bot app to free up doctors’ time was dropped after patients admitted they would manipulate the system by exaggerating symptoms to see a GP quicker.
NHS clinical commissioning groups in London had intended to use the Babylon healthcare app for its “symptom checker” function, which uses artificial intelligence to quiz patients about their symptoms.
In each successive level, the conversational partner shows more interest in the bot.
At some point, the conversation transitions to one where sex is discussed explicitly.
The chatbot was primed with pedophile conversations from an existing law enforcement database.
