Humans in the Loop is an award-winning social enterprise founded in 2017 with the vision to connect conflict-affected communities to digital work
Witnessing the distress caused to communities by armed conflict and forced displacement, Humans in the Loop was established with the big idea of channeling work opportunities to those who need them the most as an alternative to the reliance on humanitarian aid.
Future of work
We currently have a workforce of more than 250 conflict-affected people who are working to power some of the most exciting applications of AI. They receive specialized ML annotation training and are being prepared to become the professional "humans-in-the-loop" of the near future.
Our hybrid model
Humans in the Loop is a hybrid social enterprise which is comprised of two entities: a for-profit company which provides employment opportunities to our beneficiaries, and a non-profit foundation which offers training programs to upskill them and support them in their career development. Each year, the company donates 25% of its net profits to finance the core activities of the foundation.
Our goal is to provide digital work and training opportunities in some of the areas of the world which are hit hardest by armed conflict and forced displacement. We recognize the complexity of working in such fragile contexts and in order to navigate the challenges around employing and paying people in these locations, we partner with a network of established local organizations with a proven track record.
