Visual Evidence: Methods and Tools for Human Rights Investigation

Registration

Human rights groups make great efforts to document violations and crimes. Such material is usually censored from social media. The data loss and the scattered distribution of this material makes research and effective use of it extremely difficult. This workshop discusses how the Syrian Archive and VFRAME are developing new methodologies and technologies for human rights researchers. The first half of the workshop will include discussions on legal challenges, censorship, the networked image, and the reviewing of traumatic content. The second half will explore new computer vision tools for locating and analyzing large video datasets to find objects of interest, such as illegal munitions. The methodologies and technologies discussed aim to foster dialogue on issues related to violence, peace, accountability, and justice.

Participants need to bring their laptops for the workshop.
