About Us

Visym Labs is a startup founded in 2020 with the goal of building a global platform for consented and privacy preserving computer vision. Our team of vision researchers and software engineers are developing a full stack solution for privacy preserving computer vision that includes:

  • Consented datasets of people.    Visym Collector is a global platform for collecting large scale consented video datasets of people for visual AI applications. Collector is able to record, annotate and verify custom video datasets of rarely occuring activities for training visual AI systems (e.g. activity detection), at an order of magnitude lower cost than existing methods. Our distributed data collection team is spread over five continents and fifty countries to collect unbiased datasets for global visual AI applications.
  • Privacy preserving visual sensors.     Visym Sensors are visual sensors coupled with a machine learning system that are privacy preserving by design. We have designed a patent pending optical element that can be inserted into the optical imaging chain of a camera. The result is a sensor designed specifically for visual machine learning tasks that does not leak private information.
  • Ethical visual analytics.     We are leveraging global scale visual training data with privacy preserving visual sensors to provide a platform for ethical visual analytics. This platform is designed for the most private and sensitive areas like the home, where no one wants cameras watching them. We are creating a platform for you to take advantage of the wide ranging benefits of visual AI, while preserving your civil liberties.
We see a future where visual AI is ubiquitous. We want you to be in control of your visual data in your home, at work or in public spaces. The Visym team is passionate about computer vision and privacy, and we are creating the tools to ensure this future. Visym Labs is located in Cambridge MA, USA.
