The third webinar of the RESPECT Webinar Series 2017 New technologies, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Tackling Human Trafficking was held on Thursday, February 23, 2017.

Brands like Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo have changed the way the world communicates on a global scale. These multinational brands have also paved the way in terms of innovation, education and addressing the world’s most complex societal issues through research initiatives, data analysis, youth outreach, and philanthropy.

These technology companies are developing key innovations that are changing the way human trafficking cases are investigated and victims are identified. This webinar will seek to address the following: How have these companies changed the anti- human trafficking field since the beginning of the modern anti-human trafficking movement? What are the latest technologies that each company is now developing?  What trends are emerging in terms of technological advances in addressing this crime, and how technology is being used for criminal activity? What have been the lessons learned as the field has grown and developed and technology continuously changes to impact this crime?

The webinar featured expert speakers from academia, the private sector and the NGO community:

  • Greg Clark, Senior Program Manager, Content Moderator and PhotoDNA Cloud Service, Microsoft
  • Matt Friedman, CEO, Mekong Club
