Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9829818A1] A method of providing real-time, augmented information to a chat room user about one or more other users in the chat room is provided. Information is received from another chat room user (405). The information received from the other chat room user is then analyzed to determine one or more analyzed guess attributes of the chat room user (445). The analyzed guess attributes may include, for example, the user's age, gender, or level of education. Upon determining the one or more analyzed guess attributes of the other chat room user, they are displayed to the local chat room user (455). According to other aspects of the invention, the identity of a chat room user can be verified and the likelihood that a particular text was written by a given person can be determined.
