In the technology world, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are anticipated to be game-changers, integrating highly skilled AI tools, software, and eventually machines into almost every field. The world we live in is being transformed by artificial intelligence. Unpredictably beneficial has been its impact on society, from increasing employee satisfaction to facilitating new technologies. While everyone discusses the commercial applications of artificial intelligence, the ways in which artificial intelligence is assisting in the fight against injustice are frequently overlooked. Patterns are at the heart of AI and machine learning. Overwhelmingly of data into a program, the machine can then follow connections between information focuses that are excessively mind boggling for the human cerebrum to distinguish. AI is able to make guesses about the likely outcome of a new question after “learning” from previous data. With regards to hostile to dealing drives, this prescient capacity guarantees both invigorating advancement and expected traps.
There are many ways technology can combat human trafficking:
Information accumulation and investigation
It is essential to have technology that is able to aggregate and analyze data, such as the Spotlight Tool developed by Thorn, in order to be able to track and trace traffickers and greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to conduct an investigation in light of the increasing number of escort listings and illicit videos that are posted online on a daily basis.
Utilizing Blockchain to provide traceability and provenance
Tech Against Trafficking is a collaboration of influential tech companies with the goal of eradicating human trafficking through technology. Companies use blockchain to keep track of their global supply chains and find opportunities for exploitation. Additionally, it may offer a means of identifying the worldwide undocumented population. (AI) Artificial Intelligence Age progressions that are necessary to locate missing people who have been gone for years can be made easier with artificial intelligence.
Authorities are able to identify victims of human trafficking by applying facial recognition software to postings and comparing the results to reports of missing persons.
Technology for survivors and victims
Professional support can meet survivors where they are and develop the skills they need to reenter the workforce through e-learning platforms and e-medicine apps.
You can also easily report instances of human trafficking or assist law enforcement by utilizing technological tools.
STOP APP – STOP THE TRAFFIK, a global organization working to prevent human trafficking and exploitation, has developed the first global app that is available in multiple languages to report any suspicion or incident of modern slavery or human trafficking.
TraffickCam is an app that lets you take a picture of the next hotel room you stay in and upload it to a database that law enforcement can use to find the locations of victims of human trafficking in photos or videos.
Drivers Against Dealing – is a versatile organization of transportation experts that helps policing perceiving and detailing dealers.
In the fight against human trafficking, technology continues to provide effective tools. Each year, the tools become faster, more accurate, and enable us to do more to fight human traffickers and support survivors.
