Webinar information

Want to learn more about contact tracing? What are the technology options that can assist? How do the data flows work? Why is it so hard to get it right?

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, part of the discussion has been about using modern technologies to help with contact tracing – finding the contacts of infected people so that we can cut chains of transmission.

Koi Tū Research Fellow Dr Andrew Chen is giving a public Zoom lecture this Friday 3 July at 12 pm (New Zealand time).

If you want to learn more about the complexity behind the scenes, this will be a good introduction. Andrew will cover the technical elements of tracing systems, the policy considerations such as privacy, usability, and effectiveness, and provide some short international case studies.
