Fight money laundering and human trafficking with Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.
To conclude the four-month 2023 BIGDataAIHUB Case Competition and celebrate the winners, please join us at the Fighting Crime with Big Data Conference!
This conference is being organized by the University of Toronto Institute for Management & Innovation’s BIGDataAIHUB in conjunction with Scotiabank. Global experts will be discussing the ways in which big data and artificial intelligence are being used to fight money laundering and more specifically, human trafficking. An estimated USD $2 trillion in illegal funds is laundered every year around the globe. These funds represent the proceeds of crime. In the case of human trafficking, these crimes include sexual exploitation, forced labour (slavery), organ removal, sale of children and more.
The conference will follow the 2023 BIGDataAIHUB Competition finalist presentations in the morning and the top three teams sharing the $25,000 in prize money, will be announced at the end of the conference. You are also welcome to observe the morning presentations if you wish and registration for that is separate (Please register for the morning presentations here). There is no charge for either event. A light luncheon will be provided prior to the start of the conference and three $50 Amazon Card give-away draws will be made throughout the afternoon.
Please arrive early to browse the display tables, network, and have a bite to eat. Guests are welcome. Advance registration is requested.
CPA CPD Credit: Please note that attendees of this Conference are eligible for CPA CPD Credits.
