Human/machine alliance to boost safer cities
Hotspot Map


Click to add a dangerous place for cycling or upvote one from the existing list!




Our idea consists in creating an AI model to analytically estimate a perceived safety score for every image being analysed:

Firstly, we are asking you to help us locate unsafe hotspots or places needing intervention (so that we can validate our previous model), while we start working with urban labs on solutions to promote change. If you can, upload a photo of the place and leave a comment to caption it. You may also vote on the pins already placed - we are trying to empower cyclists in fighting for their own safety, so it is all about community values. Let's make our home a safer, greener, cleaner place. Next steps will be further announced.

Thank you!
