Description

Come and see us in this session on how cloud computing could fundamentally change the way we understand and react to emerging infectious diseases. Project Premonition seeks to detect pathogens in animals before these pathogens cause outbreaks in people. It treats mosquitoes as devices, which can locate and sample pathogens from animal populations. Drone-deployed robotic mosquito traps collect mosquitoes at scale, which are gene sequenced, and then known and unknown pathogens are computationally detected in the cloud using computational genomics.
