John Walsh is on the road pitching software used in the 2009 Operation Orange Tree sting that resulted in the arrest of 70 plus persons, aged 17-83 years.
The software can recognize child pornography and identify the sender and receiver without the sender and receiver being aware, Walsh said. He said he was not privy to the exact way it works.
(Sheriff) Kevin Walsh said after the software flags a picture as child pornography, the officers secure search warrants for both involved in the peer-to-peer exchange. The concentration will be on Onondaga County and Central New York exchanges, but on the Internet, the two involved could be anywhere.
I can't even begin to imagine the slippery slope associated with this technology.
