Social Crowd Map (SCM)

Updated 1 year 10 months ago

Our team tackles the problem of post-Earthquake damage assessment. Our goal is to exploit crowdsourcing in order to provide real-time analysis of the earthquake intensity and a (short- and long- term) damage assessment.

Instead of creating a new server where users can upload their data, we create an application able to gather information from different crowdsources. In our specific case, we considered the information freely shared by users on social networks like Twitter and Instangram.

The nice part of our application is that users can browse this data through a map.

CharityViz: Making IATI data easily accessible from web sites

Updated 1 year 10 months ago

IATI is a global transparency standard that makes information about aid spending easier to access, use and understand. This data has been made available as linked data on Kasabi at http://kasabi.com/dataset/iati, but this is not in a form suitable for `regular' consumption.  To address this we have created the CharityViz jQuery plugin,  designed to be simple to use on any page from project web sites to blogs.

Sense Depression

Updated 1 year 10 months ago

This solution is provided for the Cure Depression challenge.
The problem description is;
There is no blood test or imaging that can be done to diagnose depression.  The diagnosis is based on self-reported symptoms, and there is a lot of overlap between different psychiatric issues in terms of the symptoms people experience.
Once a diagnosis has been made, doctors have the same problem in monitoring effects of treatment -- they see the patient at one point in time and have to judge whether they are better or worse.
