Gaetano Borriello: Personalizing Public Health
Gaetano Borriello leads the Open Data Kit project (http://opendatakit.org) that seeks to develop a suite of mobile tools for community health workers in East Africa to use in both clinic and home-visit settings.
Borriello's students work with several NGOs in the area to get their tools into practical use. The objective is to develop a open-source toolkit of software and hardware platforms that can be easily customized for the different contexts faced by these organizations and be simple enough that they can make these adaptations themselves.
