    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.
