In the fight against the corona virus , the shared hopes of science and politics are currently weighing on smartphone apps . Spanish researchers have now developed a blockchain-based mobile application that , among other things , is intended to ensure compliance with the social distancing requirements . For example , users can use the app to obtain licenses for shopping in the supermarket .
Social distancing thanks to the Corona app
Researchers at the University of Salamanca now want to have developed such software together with the Spanish Institute for Artificial Intelligence AIR . Here ,the scientists want to use blockchain technology and artificial intelligence to curb the spread of the pathogen SARS-CoV-2 . At the same time , the app should provide its users with recommendations for action and warn of possible sources of infection . Here , the developers take advantage of the potential of artificial intelligence .
The software is to independently evaluate official health data and media reports , thereby modeling the further spread of the virus . With our app we try to provide information about the COVID-19 pandemic and the development of the virus . At the same time ,we want to help medical professionals and government officials make decisions about the pandemic , the researchers summarize the goals of their project in a joint interview .
Fighting the virus – can blockchain apps help?
PwC’s management consultants recently developed a corona pass for workplaces that users can use to show their test results . The app from the Dutch public health blockchain consortium , in turn , is designed to protect non-infected people from possible contagion risks via their movement profiles .
