Dubbed as Google on steroids because of its exemplary performance as the search results are not the millions of page-links with description, but in depth curated infographics that lead to the criminal directly.

The search is definitely advanced and is definitely helping catch human traffickers and criminals involved in online crime. The search engine Memex, focuses on memory and index of platforms where human traffickers are present. These may be online forums, chat rooms, advertisements. Based on the principle of searching in-depth and helping catch criminals was the main scope of this search tool at the very outset of the project. Christopher White and 17 other members of the team have developed Memex to curb cyber crime as many hackers and criminals try to lure victims through this method.

  1. This is nothing new. There has always been another layer of the Internet for years that literally dwarfs what you and I have come to know as the World Wide Web. Memex is simply a peak at the vast store house of dark data; so qualified and vetted vendors (not Snowden) may build new ways to sort, stack and quantify the same.
