Online child safety solutions have long been synonymous with parental control, monitoring and restrictions. Apart from leaving children out of the learning process and promoting ‘underground’ behaviors such solutions are largely ineffective and even counter-productive as per the latest research from the London School of Economics.
With proliferation of tablets and smartphones among very young children and growing use of online applications- it becomes ever more important to involve the children in managing their online safety. Privately brings Swiss innovation to create child-centric online safety solutions focused on building resilience in children through a combination of self-help tools, awareness and education. By empowering children to better manage their own digital lives we help develop better digital citizens who engage positively with digital media and are better able to leverage the wonderful possibilities that the Internet has to offer.
Yoty is a personal robotic assistant for young children online which helps them be more aware, secure and private online and to engage positively with digital media. Based on a deep learning engine, YOTY delivers contextual education and help to children through an advanced user interface (chat-bot).
