Lizzie is free for social workers and those who work in charities. For everyone else, we have to charge to keep the lights on.
Each client relationship involves two servers. The first supports data collected by our clients. The second is managed by Frontline receives survey responses that allow us to train the model. Frontline’s server never receives user identifiable responses.
One of the world’s largest research agencies – YouGov. With their support we built a nationally representative panel of 7400 Germans. We check in with our panel every quarter, tracking their experiences of abuse – as victims, perpetrators and even bystanders.
This depends on the client and their agreement with Frontline. But updates can range from every quarter to a year.
Using either police or healthcare data to build Lizzie would make her less accurate. We conducted research which showed that different types of people approach different types of services for help. Therefore, building Lizzie using police information would make her less accurate in healthcare settings, and vice versa.
At Frontline, we believe the conversation needs to be less about “why didn’t the victim leave” and more about “why didn’t the perpetrator stop!” To get there we are building tools that help us understand more about perpetrators.
Yes. We believe domestic violence is a crime that acutely and disproportionately affects women.
We want to live in a society where domestic abuse is identified by a member of frontline services within the first 100 days.
