E-2 Unlimited Technologies, LLC was founded in 2019 to support commercialization of the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded ChatCoder project.
The ChatCoder project began in 2007 when an undergraduate student proposed developing automated techniques for identifying online predatory content. The project soon expanded to incorporate detection of cyberbullying, self-harm, relationship violence, and other harmful material in online text. Over 65 students, many of them students of color and women in computer science have participated in the project, and many of them are co-authors on our many publications. The algorithms that have been developed have shown a high degree of accuracy for the detection of cyberbullying and online sexual predation of youth.
The ChatCoder algorithms have been rebranded as TextQ with the advent of the commercialization effort. We are actively seeking pilot test sites, for both the App and the network versions of our software, and would love to hear from you if you are interested in testing the product.
