In conflict zones around the world, serious human rights violations repeatedly occur through the use of illegal munitions. VFRAME shows how surveillance technologies can be used to document such violations – for example in the Syrian conflict. A visual search engine was trained to analyze video data sets from battle zones to spot such weapons. In order to train the neural network of the search engine to recognize them even in low-resolution recordings, 3D models were created and fed into the object detection software.
