How to use IT to prevent the spread of corona

Knowledge Snacks Annemeike Tan

At the moment, countries are taking different approaches to using IT to control the spread of COVID -19. Different contact tracing, quarantine tracking, and entry permission systems are developed and used. However, there is no general framework that explains and compares the ways different countries use information technology (IT). Amin Amiri, assistant professor of information systems at Tilburg University, is developing such a framework. This framework can quickly show the holes in the control strategy of a country.

In this series of videos, Amiri shares the preliminary outcomes of his research on COVID-19 spread control systems used in different countries.
