About the Project

Description

The goal of this project is to help slow the spread of covid-19. We are developing an app that will use location data over a period of time to help notify others if they have been in close proximity of a victim of coronavirus while also providing them with key insights on their probability of being infected. All data is stored locally and only queried an agent has been in contact with someone infected, removing privacy concerns. Using a probabilistic finite state machine, we can also provide risk insights based on symptoms and verified positive tests of coronavirus.

How far along is it
