Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher at a press conference asked technology companies, including Microsoft, to form a task force to find creative solutions for addressing online child exploitation.
“Samantha Doerr, of Microsoft’s Digital Crimes Unit, said the company is looking forward to working with task force. “Given our history in combating child exploitation with PhotoDNA, Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS), National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and more, we view this partnership as another valuable opportunity to help raise awareness of this issue,” she said. Microsoft, Canadian police, and international law enforcement officers also developed the Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS), a unique software tool that helps law enforcement officials collaborate and share information with other police services.
Doerr said Moore and Kutcher’s DNA Foundation task force is likely to call upon these Microsoft technologies as it grows into its goal of reducing child exploitation.
