Po-Shen Loh: Disrupting the Spread of COVID-19
NOVID, the world's first contact tracing app demonstrably able to accurately measure distances was created in Pittsburgh. It has stood as the only anonymous contact tracing app published in the USA for over one month. The leader of the project, Carnegie Mellon University math professor Po-Shen Loh, will chat about the insights and technical breakthroughs (leveraging talent from the local ecosystem) that led to its development, as well as the challenges encountered during the sprint to produce a solution for general public use.
