Good sex chat bots
The organization could then send patients pills, patches or rings through the mail.
The following year the organization launched an app that let patients in California order STD tests.
Microsoft employees built the bot in a philanthropic initiative called Project Intercept, in collaboration with nonprofits that hope it can reduce demand for sex workers, and the incentives for criminals to coerce people into the sex trade.
The technology is not a product of Microsoft itself.
Project Intercept’s lead partner, Seattle Against Slavery, is working with counterparts in 21 other U. cities, including Boston and Houston, to deploy the bot more widely.So far, the chatbot has exchanged 14,000 messages with nearly 1,000 people who responded to the planted ads.In about half those cases it heard enough to deliver a warning message.“If law enforcement perform stings in a city they might get a few dozen people, but we know there have to be thousands and thousands of guys out there looking to buy sex,” says Robert Beiser, executive director of Seattle Against Slavery.Yesterday Planned Parenthood rolled out a new chatbot designed to help teenage girls get answers to questions about sexual health and puberty.
The idea is to give young people a place to ask questions that have often been stigmatized or considered embarrassing.“NGOs had strategies that were pretty effective but no way to scale them.”The pair’s initiative first took shape when they entered the philanthropic category of Microsoft’s annual week-long hackathon in 2012.
