ABOUT MOSAIC FEDERATION
Mosaic Federation is a pioneer in the fight against modern day slavery, concentrating its efforts on the dismantling and disruption of the organized criminal networks responsible for facilitating the slave trade. Mosaic’s main initiatives include: Human Slavery Expose, Artificial Intelligence, Law Enforcement, and most recently, Disaster Relief. For the past three years Mosaic has teamed up with CNN for their Freedom Project, which shines a light on and fights against modern-day slavery, through PSA exposes, where filmmakers submit 1 minute PSA videos exposing modern-day slavery happening today in major cities around the world. Throughout the remainder of the year, Mosaic works behind the scenes with law enforcement agencies to help dismantle the organized criminal networks responsible for facilitating the slave trade globally through education, diplomatic liaising and artificial intelligence. MOSFED consistently engages the top experts in order to develop technology and artificial intelligence to aid the fight against human trafficking. They have found that while crimes are relatively predictable, it requires the ability to sort through mass amounts of data to find the patterns useful to law enforcement. MOSFED thus endeavors to design, create, and collaborate on this type of technology to better assist law enforcement’s actions against human slavery. In 2019, Mosaic will begin their newest initiative, Disaster Relief, which deploys special task forces to natural disaster areas to help prevent human trafficking in the affected area.
