Description
"Based in Israel, Zzapp believes that malaria elimination is possible, and has committed to helping achieve it. Many countries have eliminated malaria by thoroughly spraying every water body, the malaria mosquito breeding site. In Africa, however, the challenge is more complicated, due to conditions spanning from climate to infrastructure. As a result, malaria is one of the deadliest diseases on the continent, and one of the greatest impediments to economic growth. Zzapp harnesses technology and artificial intelligence to personalize malaria-elimination interventions to every village and town, and to monitor progress to ensure success. Zzapp’s end to end solution, from planning through monitoring to validation, will be tested this year in a series of experiments in Zanzibar, Mozambique, Ethiopia, and Ghana."

ZzappMalaria is a semifinalist in IBM Watson's AI XPRIZE, which seeks to use AI to solve global issues.
