Google Ideas — Google’s think tank around human repression — has a mission statement to use data and technology to enable people to confront threats in the face of conflict and instability, explained Google Ideas Product Manager Justin Kosslyn at Gigaom’s Structure Data conference in New York on Wednesday. Essentially, they’re using data to do good.

When it comes to accessing this type of data from shady underground networks of human trafficking and violence cycles in conflict zones, it can be particularly hard to find, analyze and make this data actionable. But Kossyln says that one source of data that is particularly illuminating — as well as helpful for victims of these crimes — is hot lines.

Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.
