AI will help to define hotel rooms in which cover children - the victims of sexual slavery


In 2016 researchers started the application for collecting photos of 50,000 hotels worldwide which can be compared with the images of the victims placed by malefactors: criminals often use the selfies made their victims in hotel rooms.

Often dealers in child sex address potential clients with photos of the victims in hotel rooms. To help to find and save them, the staff of the University of Washington developed the system of artificial intelligence which can distinguish features of the hotel room according to the photo and define where it was made, potentially giving to investigators new catches and opportunities for fight against trade in children.

the System is kept a secret and so far is used by exclusively law enforcement agencies or the special profile organizations, such as National center of missing and the exploited children (National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, NCMEC) so confidential information - photos of children - the victims of human trafficking - does not extend on the Internet.

the Idea of developers consists in loading into an algorithm of AI of the photo of hotel rooms, then that could distinguish a photo background. Some functions are simple in development as the interior of hotels is often standardized, up to the choice of furniture. According to Abbie Stiliana (Abby Stylianou), one of developers working on the project, the system of artificial intelligence studies a set of filters gradually: here so the headboard of a bed of this hotel, and here so - a lamp in other hotel looks.
