CINA Virtual Distinguished Speaker Series: “Finding Trafficking Networks in Online Commercial Sex Ads” with Crysta Price, HTI Labs, Creighton University
September 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us for a discussion about human trafficking, including a case walkthrough that describes how data analytics, AI, and collaboration with law enforcement agencies led to the dismantling of a large international sex trafficking organization.
Crysta Price, the founder of HTI Labs, a company using data science to unmask trafficking networks, will discuss the origins of her company and the ecosystem of products that she is developing to counter human trafficking. She will discuss her basic approach as well as some of the tools used in these products and conclude with a discussion of the support HTI Labs provided to Operation Extended Stay, an HSI investigation resulting in the dismantling of the largest international commercial sex network operating in the United States.
