The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched a project to build a search engine and technologies that will index and organize publicly available information found deep in the Web, the parts not typically indexed by Google and Bing and other commercial engines.

The Memex project, an abbreviation for memory and index, will consist of tools to support military and government agencies in their search for publicly available information on the Internet. It will apply to any public domain content.

Initially, Memex tools will target human trafficking. The use of forums, chats, advertisements, job postings, hidden services, and more continues to enable a growing industry of what DARPA Program Manager Chris White calls “modern slavery.” The ability to curate the index, along with configurable interfaces for search and analysis, would let those searching to uncover trafficking schemes.

The commercial sex trade has grown across the Web in forums, chats, advertisements, and job postings. Earlier this week, DARPA posted a proposal and paper outlining the project.

    Let them dig. They’ll tap into my computer and see nothing but seditious, borderline threatening comments aimed at the president and congress. What are they going to do? Audit me? That’s a laugh, I haven’t filed taxes in over 10 years, and I don’t plan on it anytime soon. There are ways around having to file. I suggest everyone look them up.
