#HackfromHome - an anti-viral virtual hackathon.

We’re giving people a chance to respond with action, working together to improve the lives of everyone affect by the Coronavirus. Our goal is to band together to help communities, patients, and their families better using what we know best - technology.

App to notify individuals their risks based on mobility network

The idea is based on mobility network where individuals are nodes, and edges between two nodes are the probability of two individuals share the same location and time over the last 5 days (incubation period).

This network, once built, can be used to calculate the risk scores for individuals who is tested positive. It can be used to also to provide location-based risk alert.
