Talk Title: Building Knowledge Graphs for Social Good
Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series
Abstract: Illicit activities like human trafficking and narcotics have a significant Web footprint. In this talk, I will introduce and talk about building knowledge graphs (KG), a powerful means of representing and reasoning over knowledge using intelligent algorithms, to combat such problems for social good. I will also introduce a KG-centric system called DIG, developed in our group, that is currently being used by more than 100 US law enforcement agencies to combat human trafficking.
This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium
