Hacking the CoronaVirus... one cough/sneeze as a time.
#BuildForCOVID19 Global Hackathon /// 27-30 March 2020
A voice app (Amazon Alexa/Google Home/Apple HomePod) that detect people having a dry cough - guiding users to wash their hands afterwards and to take their temperature (if they are coughing more than 3 times a day or more coughing more than 1h - Covid19 symptoms according to the NHS)
The app will guide the user with medical instructions and alert local authorities & medical
staff if the cough and user’s temperature is getting worst - so they can respond.
It’s like Corona tracking BEFORE users even know they have corona.
Current V-apps solutions don’t offer seamless CX
Apple siri’s voice assistant provides coronavirus advice (Pulling information from US health authorities)
Facebook crafted an Whatsapp chatbot (in UK)
Google asks users about symptoms for Carnegie Mellon coronavirus forecasting effort.

The Final Goal
We aim for Google/Alexa/Apple to integrate our hack and change the current rules (Trigger app only by words) for the health sake of their users and of course with their (GDPR lign) approval.
Today Alexa & Google Voice & Apple Home "listen mode" 24/7 but aren't allowed to save the recordings.
Achoo aim to change only what TRIGGERS (sneeze & cough) those Voice apps.
To Take this hack ever further, feel free to contact us and help us make this hack a real thing to make a real positive change to humankind worldwide. #StaySafe
