This poster presents a tool for agent-mediated information exchange between users/children while chatting online. The Internet plays a significant role in
the lives of children today by opening up a whole new world. It provides excellent educational opportunities, access to a huge range of information and
can be fun. However, it also plays a role in the abuse of children in a variety of ways. We are aware of the potential for paedophiles to misuse modern
technology to abuse children’s trust by attempting to contact them through chat rooms. Hence, there is a need to automate the process of monitoring
information exchange when children chat on-line.
