World Economic Forum 2020

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters is the foremost creative force for engaging the world's top leaders in collaborative activities to shape the global, regional and industry agendas at the beginning of each year. In this regard, the Forum's mission – improving the state of the world – guides the design and development of the Annual Meeting objectives.

Human trafficking is an epidemic social injustice, with an estimated 71% of the approximate 25 million victims represented by women and girls. The “industry” brings in $150 million in profits annually – much of which funnels through our global financial system. Banks are trying to prevent this – but until recently were under-equipped using traditional detection methods. Join our Ellen Zimiles and Tim Mueller as they discuss how banks can use cutting-edge AI technologies to better detect and ultimately prevent human trafficking.
