[THREAD] 1/ In light of the #humantrafficking cases of Jeffrey Epstein & R. Kelly this week, we want to share some of the #hightech ways orgs are working to catch & prosecute #traffickers while protecting children. A summary of our white paper on 40 #ToolsAgainstChildTrafficking.
2/ This #whitepaper presents a list of technologies combating #childtrafficking. By providing this resource, we hope to consolidate core knowledge and enable law enforcement, government agencies, and nonprofits to select and combine strategies with maximum effectiveness.
3/ A prominent #hightech method to fight trafficking is #ImageRecognition. Orgs are able to identify victims (@thorn), create #videofingerprints to filter & #eliminateCSAM (@_project_vic, @twohathq), and scan the internet for photos of missing children in ads (@marinusai).
4/ User-generated databases like @TraffickCam by @theexinititative allow anyone who has spent time in a hotel room to #combattrafficking. Users can upload photos of their hotel to a #database used by law enforcement to match images to the location.
5/ Several organizations have created #chooseyourownadventure gaming apps where users play through scenarios and learn the signs of #humantrafficking, plus access to legal actions they can take and additional resources. (@Astra_Beograd, @LifeboatProject)
6/ Suspicious activity and cases of #childtrafficking can be reported through @STOPTHETRAFFIK & @missingkids. Truckers can use @TATKylla to learn red flags and other info on travel plazas, gas stations, and other areas specific to their industry.
7/ #DatabaseManagement tools build up info to prevent trafficking. @UNmigration has created a #datacollaborative of geographic-specific info from 90,000+ cases of #humantrafficking to provide age & gender of victims, how victims are controlled, and forms of trafficking by region.
8/ Another category of tech is #DeepLearning and #AI. These tools are capable of diving into the #darkweb to target, deter, delay, and gather data on likely buyers (@saslavery) or to map and cluster dark web sites to shed light on hidden areas of the internet (@HyperionGray).
9/ Innovators are also using #AI to catch potential buyers. @terredeshommes responded to the industry of webcam child sex tourism with a virtual 10 y/o girl named Sweetie. Gov. orgs are able to use this tool to unmask offenders and collect #data to implement new #policy.
10/ Unfortunately, #trafficking is often relevant in the news. It's worth taking time to familiarize ourselves with the unique #hightech tools created to #endhumantrafficking. For more details, read our full #whitepaper at…. #ToolsAgainstChildTrafficking
