to live with pathogens, instead of killing them; a first-of-its-kind ultra accessible water park is changing the way families spend time together and is not a 'special needs' park, but a park of inclusion; and a Canadian NGO has built a web crawler that identifies images of child sexual abuse and issues automated notices to take them down. It has already analysed more images in six months than the Centre analysed in 15 years and almost all the takedown notices have been successful.
