At BISITE we develop tech solutions to brave COVID-19

Our research group, BISITE, specializes in new technologies. We are using this knowledge to find solutions that will help mitigate this and future pandemics.

Specifically, we are working on the development of several platforms which employ technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain or big data to control social distancing and even predict an outbreak or other epidemic.

Until we get a vaccine, social distancing is one of the best measures against the spread of the disease. Taking into account that this is a new situation for everyone, we have designed a platform that classifies patients, their location and their compliance with social distancing, providing data that are important for decision making in different areas.

We are also working on several models for predicting the evolution of the virus using intelligent systems, which have been implemented in other countries and have yielded encouraging results. We are also collaborating with several public administrations, large companies and institutions such as the UNWTO tourism organization, on the development of a bilingual passport that will improve the mobility of people who are immune to the virus.

Apart from technological platforms, we are developing control and disinfection booths that will soon be on the market. There is no doubt that we will continue to work on these and other applications, and we are also committed to raising society’s awareness so that can help overcome the situation as well as possible.

BISITE works on numerous Biotech projects, if you want to learn about some of them take a look at this video:
