Ung, Facebook, unsurprisingly, state their goal with RapiD, their editing software, is to turn it into even more of a tool to import government & AI generated data.
No! You're missing the point.


is a project of _humans_. That's it's advantage, it's Unique Selling Point. If the community listens to the siren song of big tech, and thinks that computer vision generated data is the future, then any big tech company will always beat us.

is helping OSM *now*, but they can change in a heartbeat, and set up a compeditor map system, and they will always have more computer vision resources than us. If we play the “AI”/computer vision game, WE WILL LOSE.

@rory It's already being played by Mapillary and I don't see why additional data from them would be a bad thing.
