To internet providers and search engines: June 7th, 2017
I recently was watching the news on TV when I heard a man speaking. This person was a technology expert who has written algorithms for computer and internet systems. He was very informative and intelligent – and he said he had written algorithms which are in use successfully today that help identify malware, child ***********, and fraud on line. He went on to state that he has written an algorithm that is helpful in identifying terrorist plots and cells – and he has offered this algorithm to the major search engines and information providers, like yourselves – for free. He said that this offer has not been accepted by your companies as of yet and he is concerned that unless there is pressure from outside sources, the major providers will not begin to use this technology willingly.
I am concerned, upset, and disappointed in your companies. This might not be a major benefit to your bottom lines financially, but it is of the utmost importance in our world today. People are being killed, recruited, and influenced negatively regularly. Please, please, do your part and accept the use of this algorithm in order to help prevent more death and destruction. Thank you. Suzanne Boulay
