NEW HOPE, PA — The Meet Group announced the company will join the Tech Coalition, a global alliance working to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse online. Members include major tech companies like Google, Apple, Bumble, and Pinterest.
“At The Meet Group, we are dedicated to providing an environment where our members can connect and interact safely,” said Geoff Cook, co-founder and CEO of The Meet Group. “Our commitment to improving online safety extends beyond our own apps. The Tech Coalition is committed to creating a safer digital world for children and we are honored to be part of that mission. We look forward to collaborating with global tech leaders to combat the online sexual abuse and exploitation of minors.”
“With each member that joins the Coalition, we increase our ability to drive collaborative and coordinated action to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse online,” said Sean Litton of the Tech Coalition. “The Meet Group brings a great perspective that includes a mix of building Trust & Safety solutions for both dating services, as well as for live video and creator economies.”
As part of its comprehensive safety solution, The Meet Group moderates millions of minutes of video broadcast every day. Its custom-built systems are capable of sampling every stream, every few seconds and its innovative algorithms and machine-learning capabilities enable proactive and precise moderation of as much as 100 million samples per day.
In addition to this proprietary video broadcast sampling service, The Meet Group’s live streaming moderation platform includes:
- Speech-to-Text transcription to help moderate speech in different languages
- Artificial Intelligence to programmatically estimate the age of streamers, (to help ensure minors aren’t using adult-only apps)
- Machine learning algorithms to prevent hate speech, and other dangerous textual conduct
Geoff Cook added, “The Meet Group looks forward to sharing our learnings more broadly with the industry via the Tech Coalition, as well as learning more from our peers about measures they’ve found successful in safeguarding children on the Internet.”
