Andreas represents REDE.online. REDE (“to talk” in German with the initial letters of “regional”) will be a digital platform that (a) unifies and allows for visually appealing comparisons of diverse sociodemographic data for different regions of Germany and (b) arranges digital encounters/chats between citizens whose home region differ most pronouncedly in characteristics they selected, such as population density and geographic locations. It will foster user moderation to prevent grooming and hence does not mainly rely on Machine Learning to classify harassment and grooming.
