Hundreds of Israeli high-tech experts have temporarily shifted from their private sector jobs to form a “war room”. This initiative aims to locate Israelis who went missing during the attack.
Furthermore, these volunteers are analyzing footage, including videos posted online by Hamas, to identify and find over 1,000 people who are still unaccounted for. They are using artificial intelligence and facial and voice recognition, sometimes based on clothing or recognizable features, in their makeshift command center in Tel Aviv. The information they gather is shared with Israeli authorities, and this effort is crucial in helping understand the status of those missing.
Israel has been taking aggressive action in response to the attack, including bombarding Gaza and preparing for a ground assault. Hamas has also responded by removing online footage of the attack to prevent it from being analyzed for information. This initiative is working against the clock, and volunteers are dedicated to their mission of locating missing individuals and helping the government respond to the situation.
