Abstract : This work has developed new technology that matches content between imagery relevant to a certain domain. The focus of this effort was on a law enforcement application concentrating on Human Trafficking (HT) in order to identify the room and background images that would appear in illicit advertisements and connect them to those available on hotel websites. These images would then be gathered according to hotel chain, and then further refined to individual location which would lead to estimates of GPS coordinates. Contractor also employed their unique facial recognition methods to match individuals across ads. The technology is being validated through transition to multiple law enforcement agencies.
