Call to Join Opensource Project : OSINT for Epidemics and Virus outbreaks like Corona Virus

I am planning to bring some good developers, universities, research institutes on board to develop an OSINT ( Open Source Intelligent System) for Human Race Health issues. Whatever your expertise, I believe you can contribute.

Further, I am contacting different institutions for funding this open source project and help financially to backers and developers involved in this project.

This project is opened in Github Official Opensource repo.

OSINT for Epedemics and Virus outbreaks like Corona Virus #227

Project description

Today everyone know about Corona Virus and how lethal it is to humans and economies.

History is full of such breakouts by lethal microorganisms.

Can we develop a OSINTS ( Open Source Intelligent System) that can help world medical scientist, doctors , government or even common person to understand the old / new diseases breaking out to humans in different geographical areas.

For example, one can see on map how Corona Virus is moving from one location to other. Rate of infection etc.

I am living in a very developing country - India. We recently get ourselves rid of polio virus. But this is still not fool proof. Also my country suffers from malaria and dengue caused by mosquitoes. The later is lethal.

Relevant Technology

I don't know what can be best technologies to implement for this OSINTS. However, AI and big-data relevant technologies can help in this project
