Mosquito project uses machine learning and automation to reduce disease
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Mosquito species spread infectious diseases that affect hundreds of humans across the globe. They breed rapidly in shallow water patches, making them hard to control. However, businesses are now responding to their threat. At Springwise we have seen drones as just one example of mosquito control. The Debug Project by Verily is using another method.
