The Voluntary Intelligence Center (CIV) is a non-profit Civil Association, which was established as a response towards the events that occurred in the devastated areas in Mexico due to a major earthquake on September 19, 2017. The CIV´s primary mission is to develop technology and strategies to help the civilian population during future disasters. In collaboration with the academical sector in Mexico and the world, the CIV has developed 3 mayor projects: Silvana, SIRACT and VATRE. Silvana is virtual three-dimensional scenario simulator to train not only human UAV pilots and strategist, but also neural convolutional networks. This virtual scenario allows the CIV to simulate various disaster scenarios and its consequences. The SIRAC project is related to image recognition systems and robot vision and navigation, this project emphasized in building the brains of the CIV´s UAV assets. VATRE is a project related to the chassis and electromechanical components of the UAV. Today, the CIV is expanding the branches of SIRAC to implement satellite imagery recognition software in order to build and integral symbiotic tool capable of mounting an efficient disaster response for the future.
Organize the voluntary civilian population to act efficiently during emergencies and disasters.
Develop technologies and strategies to help the civilian population during disasters .
Facilitate the acquisition of practical experience of those interested in unusual environments of their daily environment .
In the short term, to be a Civil Association known for its capacity for technological and strategic development .
In the medium term , offer the tools to act in the prevention , response and reconstruction related to the disasters of the future .
In the long term , be a point of reference for those who have the authentic feeling to help .
The VIC is characterized by being an association where the main objective is teamwork to be able to support in emergency situations.

At the same time, his passion for art has led him to venture into the performing arts as a producer, choreographer and tango dancer, receiving in 2019 the recognition as "Ambassador of Tango in Mexico" by the Casa de Cultura Argentina in Mexico.
David studied engineering in mechatronics at the Universidad del Valle de México, a Master of Science in Microelectronics Engineering and a PhD in Communications and Electronics at the National Polytechnic Institute. The subjects that he is passionate about are related to technology, among which stand out the control of systems, robotics, power electronics and air vehicles. On the different topics he has carried out research published in conferences and specialized magazines. Being of his interest, he always seeks to update himself with new trends and apply them to his projects.
Master in data science economist and political scientist graduated from the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico (ITAM). She has three main interests: research, teaching, and helping alleviate social problems.
In the field of research and academics, he has specialized in Econometrics and Data Analysis. Shehas served as a Research Assistant at Harvard University and ITAM, as well as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Political Science at her alma mater. She worked as a Data Analyst in the Ministry of Education and as an Intern in the Senate and the National Electoral Institute (INE) in Mexico.
Previously, she has been involved in social initiatives in the fields of education, poverty, health and the environment. Born in Chiapas, one of the poorest states in Mexico, she has been on medical and educational missions in different towns in the state.
In the field of data science, Karla has trained convolutional neural networks capable of identifying and locating different elements of interest. Among her most recent works, she has developed the mechanisms for identifying collapsed structures within the SIRAC project.
