Welcome to
CMU's Human Rights Video Analysis Toolbox

The widespread availability of mobile phones with high quality cameras means that dramatic events around the world can be captured on video and rapidly shared via social media. The goal of this project is to create computer vision and machine learning-based tools and methods to rapidly process and analyze this video. We hope these tools make human rights advocates’ workloads more manageable and less stressful. They are meant to augment the experience and expertise of the human rights researcher, not to replace human judgment or decision-making.
