Traffic Jam is a suite of analytics tools that saves hours and sometimes days of investigative time to find traffickers and recover victims by quickly turning big data into actionable intelligence. Traffic Jam employs a variety of AI tools, from machine learning to rank leads for detectives, to facial recognition to find missing children, to computer vision to identify patterns in a bedspread in a photo that would help find a victim. In 2018, Traffic Jam was used to identify an estimated 3,000 victims of sex trafficking.
