Now, a spy software to identify online paedophiles

Now, a spy software to identify online paedophilesLondon, Oct 19 : A computer program that can identify paedophiles, who pretend to be children on the Internet, is being developed by scientists at Lancaster University.

By analysing language and syntax used online, the new technology can reveal if an adult is masquerading as a child as part of the victim "grooming" process.

The scheme, known as Project Isis, will also be able to keep track of secret code words used by paedophiles as file names for child pornography.

Smarter hurricane evacuations would save hundreds of lives

Washington, August 29: A student from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), US, has developed a computer model, which shows that hundreds of lives could be saved through smarter hurricane evacuations.

Developed by Michael Metzger, the software could allow emergency managers to better decide early on whether and when to order evacuations — and, crucially, to do so more efficiently by clearing out people in stages.

The tool could also help planners optimize the location of relief supplies before a hurricane hits.

New software to help astronauts soothe their stress levels in space

London, August 26: Researchers are developing a self-help software that allows astronauts to carry their counselors with them on a DVD, which would help them soothe their stress levels more effectively.

When astronauts in orbit stress out, they call Earth to chat with a NASA psychiatrist. But transmitting messages to Mars and beyond would take 20 minutes or so, requiring new approaches to mental health in space.

Astronauts and cosmonauts go through psychological screening before they are selected for duty, and they are trained to deal with the pressures of risky space missions.

Proposed crewed missions to Mars, though, would be a challenge even for these hardened space farers.
