Event description

Description


Blue Compass is honored to be partnering with George Mason University's Schar School of Policy and Government -Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) on a Human Trafficking focused hackathon as a part of #ExpeditionHacks event series. Human trafficking is a global enterprise that is second to drug trafficking for the most profitable criminal business. Criminals work together and the number of victims is only increasing. Create an idea to help analysts, law enforcement, or victim services using artificial intelligence/machine learning, augmented reality, or anything else!
Some ideas to consider:
- Create a predictive model of trafficking to forecast staffing needed for victim services and law enforcement
- What indicators help predict behaviors of human trafficking suppliers?
- How can data collected at the local level could help analysts at the federal level to correlate data to find traffickers and victims?
- Demonstrate use of local food prices to predict human trafficking behavior
- What can we learn from natural disasters that could prevent the emergence of human trafficking?
