EECS Researchers to Design Smartphone App that Gauges Ebola Risk

EECS researchers are creating a mobile app to combine data from social media posts and contact-tracing records of Ebola patients from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to give a running score of users’ danger for contact with Ebola via travel or crossing paths with a known Ebola patient. This work is supported by a rapid-response grant to advance Ebola-related fundamental research from the National Science Foundation. Read More
