Microsoft’s Project Premonition uses Drones to Collect Mosquitos #drone #droneday

NewImage

From Microsoft’s blog:

It starts with a better mosquito trap.

Then come the more autonomous drones, the cutting-edge molecular biology and the advanced cloud-based data analysis.

And, finally, the big payoff: Project Premonition, a system that aims to detect infectious disease outbreaks before they become widespread, with the goal of preventing major health disasters.

It may sound like the stuff of blockbuster movies, but Project Premonition aims to be fact, not fiction. Microsoft researchers are working with academic partners across multiple disciplines to develop the system, which collects and analyzes mosquitoes to look for early signs that potentially harmful diseases are spreading.
