Microsoft Cloud Project Premonition Customer Story
- Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft
Disease outbreaks happen fast. With massive data sets and limited computing power, tracking, responding to and analysing disease can take researchers up to two weeks.
How can the Microsoft Cloud help researchers capture and analyse big data to speed up the identification of outbreaks?
The Solution & Benefit
Microsoft and its partners are turning mosquitoes into field biologists. With data collected from animals that the mosquitoes bite, the Microsoft Cloud takes just 12 hours to complete 7 trillion genomic comparisons that help determine where viruses come from and how they spread.
New smart traps capture mosquitoes by using Machine Learning within the Microsoft Cloud to recognise the distinct patterns their wings make while flying.
Researchers use advanced algorithms to analyse DNA samples 20x faster and cross-reference with data from smart traps to unlock insights.
The Microsoft Cloud is helping researchers detect the spread of new viruses early so that one day we may stop outbreaks before they begin.
By combining cloud-scale computing, mosquito traps, and drone technology, we can change the way we think about research and public health.
