About the Project

Description

We're using crowdsourced Bluetooth data to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in a privacy-preserving way. The Bluetooth is used to perform automated contact tracing, alerting users if they've recently been in proximity to somebody who may have been contagious, without revealing their identity.

How far along is it

We have an app in beta testing for both iOS and Android, and are in ongoing talks with public health authorities.

Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

Right now we need Android and iOS app devs, help applying for funding, and crypto/data de-identification experts.
For an up-to-date list of extra roles we need, see covid-watch.org/collaborate.
