A group of UC Berkeley students are using their tech skills to fight terrorism. They created Archer, an online platform that offers tools to track connections between terror organizations and sanctions violations. The inspiration behind their nonprofit is personal for these students: in 2016, two of their classmates died in terrorist attacks in France and in Bangladesh. Today, nearly two dozen UC Berkeley students volunteer their time and skills at Archer, using data to fight human rights abuses, corruption and money laundering.
