Google Ideas INFO Summit

On July 16-18, 2012, Google Ideas, along with Tribeca Enterprises and the Council on Foreign Relations, hosted the Illicit Networks: Forces in Opposition (INFO) Summit. To better understand the nature of the challenge, a wide range of attendees were brought together — from those involved in illicit network activity to individuals previously victimized by them, to academics and nonprofit organizations working to counter them. Attendees brought experience from a wide range of backgrounds, including the illicit arms trade, human trafficking, organ harvesting, money laundering, and narco-trafficking. Content experts were joined by a diverse group of technologists for three days of panel sessions, lightning talks and 11 working labs sessions, all aiming to illuminate opportunities to map, expose and disrupt global illicit networks.  WebsiteHuman Trafficking Hotline Network.
