Welcome, AIF operative.

This annotation project exists to help us build an AI-based live object detection system for live camera feeds and drones operating in protest environments.

The purpose of this tool is to allow AIF operators on foot to acquire rapid, real-time intelligence in transitional spaces and dynamic threat environments. Specifically, we are trying to optimize for detecting threats of potential interest to AIF.

Potential use cases for this tool include:

  • Protest movement coordination to avoid kettles and other traps.
  • Crowdsourced collection and classification of potentially valuable legal evidence.
  • Other use cases will likely be identified in the course of research.

Threats of potential interest are identified as:

  • Police
  • Fascists
  • Firearms
  • Other classes are likely to be identified in the course of research.
