Children's champion. Wolfhope leads DHS' Child Exploitation Image Analytics program. She uses algorithms and forensic image analysis from seized child sexual abuse videos and still photos and data to detect and recognize faces for further forensic analysis. She and her team support more than 18,000 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in their efforts to find imperiled children through the tens of millions of child exploitation images they collect each year. Her groundbreaking work has helped identify and rescue 350 children, and her passion is fueled by her own experience with almost losing her daughter to a would-be abductor.
