The software developed by Sony appears online to apply the patent for a PlayStation system that allows PlayStation players to play their favorite games in multiplayer.

Sony has filed a new patent in September, describing a PlayStation Network feature that would enable the Japanese company to reward PS4 or PlayStation 5 players for their honesty while simultaneously 'punish' or penalize users for engaging in shady behavior.

The patent entitles this new tool to a "a method that allows to verify the behavior held by the players." The system also includes a "Aided Intelligence model" that detects player behavior and reports any abuse.

Sony provides an example of "interactive and social contexts" that might be used by this Neural AI-based system to assess player fairness and report any abuse or toxic behavior, as well as users from reward for their "correctness" of their behaviors.
