Technology has an important role to play in helping stop the spread of the Coronavirus. Here at Eggplant, we are contributing our Digital Automation Intelligence (DAI) platform to help test contact tracing applications across the globe.
In the US, we have donated our DAI platform to the MIT Safe Paths Project. This open-source (OS) initiative is creating tools that will help flatten the Coronavirus curve and accelerate a return to normal.
You can see in this video how Eggplant along with MIT and Digitally Assured is testing the latest Coronavirus SafePaths contact tracing application to safeguard communities.
Our intelligent automation ensures that the OS software is robust and addresses the concerns around privacy and security before it is released.
This video explains how Eggplant's image-based testing can interact with data from any source, allowing it to incorporate location and health-related data in multiple formats. This will help accelerate the delivery and resiliency of the tool for individuals, public health officials, and communities to track and trace the disease's spread.
This next video demonstrates how Eggplant auto-detects the language currently set within the Coronavirus tracker application. The non-invasive nature of Eggplant’s technology results in faster testing and release cycles.
Our CEO, Dr. John Bates, CEO summed it up "Software has an important role to play in the fight against the pandemic and we all want to help those on the front lines. By supporting the MIT SafePaths initiative, we can collectively help accelerate the delivery of a robust and resilient app for the community and healthcare workers to utilize."
