#ActivUpdates #ProjectPremonition #Drones #PublicHealth
- Project Premonition is a research project by Microsoft designed to automatically do things which earlier Entomologists had to do manually
- The prototype will identify the type of mosquito which the Entomologists need to track andeliminate flies, moths and other type of mosquitoes which do not cause/spread the virus/disease
- Along with the correct trap of mosquitoes the prototype also provides information of temperature, wind and humidity etc
- Project Premonition is designed to spot an outbreak like Zika, Dengue before it becomes a public health issue and patients line up in clinics, hospitals
- The goal is to have an early warning system in place and hence stop people from getting the disease by mitigating the spread at an early stage.
