Human Trafficking

Working with NGOs, non–profits and industry partners to disrupt human trafficking by using cloud and AI technologies to identify patterns of activity to make communities safer.

Our Initiative

Human trafficking and modern slavery are global scourges that exploit men, women, and children in both industrialized and emerging countries. It’s one of the fastest–growing crimes in the world, reaping more than $150 billion annually. IBM has been contributing technology, training, and expertise to help our NGO and non–profit partners. It has hosted hackathons to connect students and tech gurus around the globe. We recently helped develop the Traffik Analysis Hub, a global data sharing and analysis platform that takes the battle against forced labor to a new level.
