An Artificial Intelligence Framework to Combat Human Trafficking

How text analytics and visualization can shine a light on one of the most pressing human rights issues of our time.


About the webinar

Human trafficking is a global epidemic. The scale, complexity and borderless nature of the abuse can stymie law enforcement, victim support programs and prevention efforts. Data from agencies and organizations focused on human trafficking is vital to these efforts.

However, the amount, variety and unstructured nature of the data can hinder timely, effective responses by organizations with notoriously limited resources.

What if we could use the power of AI to fight for the powerless?

Join SAS public sector expert and text analytics practitioner Tom Sabo as he describes an AI framework for countering international human trafficking.

Learn about:

  • Applying text-based machine learning and rule-based text extraction to generate training for modeling efforts.
  • Enabling investigators, stakeholders and analysts to tap all the relevant data to inform better decisions.
  • How to extend the AI framework as new techniques and information become available.
