At the BISITE research group we are committed to providing solutions that can help improve the current worldwide crisis. We are making great use of our knowledge and experience in new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, big data or machine learning.
Our group has 20 years of experience in carrying out research and projects that involve disruptive technologies, which has allowed us to successfully design several prototypes targeted at COVID-19. For example, an application that helps predict outbreaks in specific areas on the basis of data regarding the estimated location of people experiencing symptoms. This app could help us take timely decisions in order to control outbreaks. Moreover, it would allow us to determine the reasons for an increased number of infections in some areas.
If the data are used correctly, they can become allies in the execution of scientific, social and medical studies. Given that we are facing a new virus with no history, the use of data is crucial, it will allow us to conduct exhaustive analyses of the evolution of the virus. It is important to obtain data from different latitudes, help us understand how the virus behaves in countries with different climates, which is why we have begun to collaborate in projects involving countries in Central America and the Middle East.
Blockchain, big data and artificial intelligence are protagonists in most projects, where they help us classify patients, their location and give recommendations on how to comply with social distancing measures or greater precautions in case of infected patients or those who have symptoms. Always respecting the privacy of the users.
We are sure that all the effort we are making will be of great value to health and government institutions.
Here is an interview published in El Mundo, which describes some of our projects. https://diariodecastillayleon.elmundo.es/articulo/castilla-y-leon/biblioteca-inteligente-coronavirus/20200528212914010455.html
