Mobile health solutions to be presented
    2018-08-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Six projects from the SDG Summer School will be presented at an event Friday at x.factory.

Yes Helmet is an incentivizing helmet for bicyclists through a mobile app that uses machine learning to classify images with helmets.

MotoSafe Industries uses affordable and non-distracting technology to increase motorcycle safety. A CleanAir Greece uses crowdsourcing to map non-compliance with smoke-free laws in public places. At Your Cervix helps prevention and early detection of cervical cancer through collaboration with menstrual tracking mobile apps.

Fem.Friendly gathers data and developing solutions to improve feminine hygiene in public places. iDoctor is a low-cost imaging system that uses AI to provide rapid detection of potential eye diseases.

The projects came from the 2018 edition of the SDG Summer School, which is a part of the Geneva Tsinghua Initiative, a partnership between Tsinghua University and University of Geneva in Switzerland for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The school focuses on team-based problem solving and hands-on prototype development in the field of mobile health. It’s run in collaboration with Be He@lthy, Be Mobile, a joint program between the International Telecommunications Union and the World Health Organization, two agencies of the United Nations that are headquartered in Geneva.

At the school, participants explore how open data, crowdsourcing technologies and low-cost open source hardware solutions can be used to gather the data needed to tackle some of the key challenges in the field of non-communicable diseases, hence providing possible solutions for the third goal of SDG: Healthy Lives and Well-Being for All at All Ages.

The school kicked off in July with two weeks in Geneva, followed by four weeks of work in collaboration with the United Labs for the Global Goals. The school ends with two weeks in Beijing and Shenzhen, where participants are exploring ways to manufacture and scale their solutions in China and around the world.
