The aim of ‘i-sense’ is to identify outbreaks of infectious disease much earlier than ever before, helping patients gain faster access to care and protecting populations.

This will be achieved by engineering a new generation of low-cost, early-warning sensing systems. These systems will exploit data mining of web information, such as search engine queries and online social media, in combination with data-linked, point-of-care diagnostics.
