A Franklin, Tenn., software company called Digital Reasoning has helped rescue 6,000 sex trafficking victims, a third of whom are children, through its algorithm-based Spotlight software program that has been used by 4,000 law enforcement officers nationwide since 2014. The company got involved in helping solve the sex trafficking dilemma when Thorn, a privately–funded nonprofit started by Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, asked the Franklin company to create a tool for law enforcement. “It is really helping solve the problem, saving years and years of work that it would take, in some cases, to apprehend folks,” U.S. Sen. Bob Corker said about Digital Reasoning’s contribution.
