Nanniebots, conceptual image. Nanniebots guarding the door to a chatroom on the internet. Nanniebots are part of a software program called ChatNannies, developed by Jim Wightman to protect children from paedophiles while they use chatrooms. Chatrooms are areas of the internet where people can 'talk' to others from all over the world. No-one can see anyone-else using the rooms, so paedophiles, pretending to be children, use them to 'groom' genuine child users. Wightman claims that the Nanniebots can strike up realistic conversations with users and detect whether or not a user is in fact a paedophile by looking for classic signs of grooming.
