Recent months have seen a distressing number of child sexual abuse cases occurring in large institutions in the U.S. and around the world.
The Catholic Church
The Boy Scouts
Olympic Gymnastics Programs
NO MORE TURNING A BLIND EYE
In every one of these cases, leaders in those institutions knew, or had reason to know, that children in their care were being sexually assaulted.
But instead of rooting out abusers, they either turned a blind eye or actively assisted in covering up the abuse.
HOW CAN WE STOP THE CYCLE?
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CAN HELP!
We have partnered with Technossus and Neil Sahota to change the way we apply AI for social good and change the world’s approach to ending child sexual abuse.
AI holds great potential because it can analyze and detect patterns within massive data sets that no
human ever could. This technology has been before been applied to institutional behavior patterns on this macro level.
We are starting where the data is the best
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
The Catholic Church is right now embroiled in an ongoing child sex abuse crisis.
That priests were ever allowed to prey on the most vulnerable is a violation of everything the Church stands for.
So perhaps it's fitting that the Church itself might prove critical in the fight against institutional child sexual abuse.
THE CHURCH HAS GREAT DATA
The church keeps meticulous records of everything its priests do.
• What parish they are assigned to
• Where they are moved
• How often and how far they are relocated
As a result, we have an incredibly robust control data set of the institutional decisions of the Church going back more than 60 years.
And now that we know who 2,600 of the abusive priests were, we can plug all this into our AI engine.
This is not predator behavior. This is institutional behavior in reaction to predators.
CLEAR PATTERNS EMERGE
CRITICAL INSIGHTS ARE DISCOVERED
The ZeroAbuse.AI system analyzes massive amounts of publicly-available data to identify complex patterns of behavior. In most cases, these are patterns that would never be visible to the human eye alone.
ZeroAbuse.AI then uses this data to help other institutions investigate abuse in their own organizations, and find patterns that could indicate attempts to cover them up.
By partnering with our efforts,
together, we can truly make the world a better, and safer, place for our children. And it’s all through the Power of AI.
CHILD SEXUAL PREDATORS HAVE NOWHERE TO HIDE
ZeroAbuse.AI is an AI tool that evaluates the risk factors that suggest potential predatory individuals within an organization and those associated with cover up.
NEW PATTERNS EMERGE
ZeroAbuse.AI system algorithms analyze massive amounts of publically-available location data to provide analysts with a better understanding of institutional patterns.
ZeroAbuse.AI uses Artificial Intelligence to Help Institutions Expose and End Child Sexual Exploitation and Assault
Our algorithms use risk factors to identify patterns of behavior that suggest potential offenses or cover up.
