Ebola: new technologies reinforcements – The World

Le Monde | • Updated | By

In Abidjan, residents receive prevention messages via SMS on their mobile.

October 20, Nigerian authorities announced the end of Ebola outbreak in Nigeria. Among the various factors that led to this success, a mobile application, eHealth, played a role “crucial” to contain the pandemic. With this virus, time is very important , explained Omobola Johnson, Nigerian Minister of Communication Technologies. The application has reduced the time to identification of infections by 75% “

Specifically, the contact tracers , these investigators to meet people who may have been contaminated, received phones and tablets equipped with the application, which they allowed to trace in real time new cases detected. Developed by the local branch of the American Society eHealth and Information Systems, this tool was deployed with the help of the World Health Organization (WHO). A similar system should be set up in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, to track the spread of the disease more effectively.

Sending Bulk SMS

EHealth is just one example, among many, of how new technologies can make themselves useful in a crisis. March 14, HealthMap, an interactive map following outbreaks based on data from social networks, local newsletters, emergencies and other databases calls, had first reported the beginning of the epidemic a week before the WHO.

Since then, high-tech initiatives are multiplying on the front Ebola. UNICEF sends messages of prevention through mass SMS. Orange has made available a Swedish NGO geolocation data – anonymous – its subscribers neighboring countries to monitor population movements and anticipate the evolution of the epidemic. IBM, meanwhile, has announced the release of Ebola Tracker, an application that allows people living in areas at risk of sending free messages to report suspected cases.

Ebola Tracker, an IBM application to track suspected cases of Ebola live.

Teams from the Red Cross, meanwhile, use Ramp, near eHealth system, also used them for three years, to identify cases of malaria. A tool that made their work more efficiently, according Benedict Matsha-Carpentier, spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent: “ Before, when you were in the depths of the Investigation Liberia, it was time to go, to write its data on paper, with the risk of errors involved, to return to Monrovia, to transmit the paper, and then analyze these data … The delay could be several weeks between the collection and analysis of data. “ Now it’s instantaneous. “ The sooner we have the information, the faster we can react” .

“The opportunities are unlimited, every day, we can invent a tool that fits a specific need “

If these innovations work today is that they are based, to a large portion of them on mobile, more and more developed, even in the most remote areas. In 2012, the World Bank estimated that nearly 75% of the world population had a mobile phone, and 5 of 6 billion subscriptions worldwide were from developing countries.

In Abidjan, residents receive prevention messages via SMS on their mobile.

Nicole Guedj, Secretary of State the right of victims in 2005, ‘ technologies and urgency go together . ” In 2006, she created the Red Helmets Foundation, which advocates, among others, for “ the provision of innovative technological tools” for aid. “ Initially, the technologies are not thought out and designed for humanitarian purposes, but they can become. The possibilities are unlimited, every day you can invent a tool that meets a specific need. “ His foundation has developed Emergesat, a satellite container to restore communications in the event of damaged infrastructure, but also Missing, a search for missing persons in natural disasters.

In recent years, other initiatives from NGOs, government, businesses or users have shown that the use of new technologies can sometimes facilitate the work on the ground.

See the map of technological innovations in the service of humanitarian:

technologies may allow us to better conduct our work <- - atom snippet!> “ says Jean-Yves Clemenzo, spokesman for the Red Cross for East Africa. “ Our approach is to be open to innovations. It’s been years that we adapt to digital, which evaluates whether a particular technology can be helpful. We have a whole team observed that environment. “ The Red Cross has even launched in October, the” Global Partnership for Humanitarian impact and innovation, “a series of meetings between NGOs, businesses and researchers to” explore new outdoor areas from humanitarian “, such as new technologies.

sensitive data

But beware, these” may also ask problems , “warns Jean-Yves Clemenzo” especially regarding data protection . ” “ In areas of conflict, for example, they are too sensitive, so we prefer direct contact. For each context, if analysis may be useful. If they pose a risk is dropped. “

Despite all these experiments, many NGOs have not taken the plunge. “The financial entry ticket hinders the establishment” says Dominique Bounie, consultant to the World Food Programme (WFP). Many companies are knocking on the door of charities to sell their technological device. “ Especially since Ebola” says, on condition of anonymity, a French NGO.

The images provided by drones offer a level of analysis of unpublished field. “

But according to Dominique Bounie, WFP, many organizations are not adequately equipped to deal with all these stresses:” There not always have the skills in-house to be aware of new technologies, identify the utility of a tool, potential partners … It takes a lot of time and energy for people who are already busy with their traditional occupation “.

Yet , technologies continue to evolve and with them, the humanitarian world. What will the next innovation that will change the way of working in the field? “ Drones ,” says Patrick Meier, co-founder of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative and author of the blog iRevolution devoted to new technologies for humanitarian work. “The images provided by drones offer a level of analysis of unpublished field. Unlike satellite images, they are much cheaper to produce, can be sent much faster with very high resolution. “ And that’s not all. “ The drone can also carry packets, which means they can transport resources, medical, for example, in the affected areas, much faster than the truck. “ Finally, the drones also have the ability to provide a Wi-Fi network, even in the most remote areas. Google and Facebook are ready to invest in this field

New technologies, an engine for employment of the disabled – Novethic

Published October 31, 2014


GPS, voice control of computer screens, video-interpretation … People with disabilities are in the technology means offset all or part of their disability. This digital revolution is radically changing the game in terms of employment; starting with the virtual job interview.


The Internet has changed everything for the disabled. This is true from the stage of the job search. Videoconferencing brings them an unparalleled tool for applying for a new job. An example with the 8 th room Handi2day , held from October 28 to 31 and by Job2day sites sponsored by Agefiph (Association Management Fund the employment of disabled people)

The principle is unique. liaise 40,000 candidates with disabilities with 70 companies, virtually. Facing their computer screen, tablet or smartphone, candidates are interviewed remote to try to win one of 2000 vacancies.

Lever brakes disability

Within Agefiph , the question of the contribution of new technologies for the professional integration of persons with disabilities is central. In 2013, the association has implemented through calls for projects, experiments that aim to reduce barriers faced by disabled people in their careers. Whether it’s a mental, psychic or progressive or chronic illness.

Some of the technologies that support employment Some are obvious: it is the case of the computer and the Web. But they still need to enjoy a suitable accessibility, regardless of disability. “The Internet has long been difficult for visually impaired people … and there is still much progress to be made,” tempers Annick Montfort, research manager for Agefiph.

The GPS is also regarded as a revolutionary tool. “It can move accurately in a city Its use can help professional lives of visually impaired people, but also a person with memory disorders or attention. In general, all connected systems will have an impact on the lives of people with cognitive impairment. “

Airbus shows an example

Teleworking has released some motor disabilities, allowing them to work remotely; emails and SMS brought deaf simple means of communication; Voice Control screen opens doors to visually impaired computer … “Another extraordinary breakthrough is video-interpretation adds Annick Montfort is a service that translates Instantly a speech to the deaf. “ The system of simultaneous translation into sign language developed within companies.

Airbus Toulouse was a pioneer in the field: in 2008, the company has established a platform for interpreting many deaf employees. At the time, Christian Rouquayrol, referring disability in the service of occupational risk prevention company, confided: “This is part of a broader reflection we carry on maintaining the employability of our disabled employees. We have among our staff, people, sometimes high-level living their bad work situation or who aspire to professional development. It is essential to take into account their difficulties. ”

The Argus II is the only time a program developed by the US company Second Sight project. This prosthesis is designed to help people with retinal degeneration and thus visually impaired. It consists of an electronic implant that enables the failed electronic retina and glasses. Although the vision of those treated is not found in 100% (patients recognize certain shapes and colors), three French hospitals are beginning to use: the National Hospital of Ophthalmology Centre (CHNO) to the Three Hundred Paris and university hospitals (CHU) de Bordeaux and Strasbourg.

The prosthesis amounted to 95,897 euros, but since August 14, it is fully reimbursed by Social Security, according to a decree published in the Official Journal . Today, three French are already equipped with the Argus II prosthesis. Worldwide, there are currently two other patients. A German and an Austrian. Still in draft form, these glasses should be presented on the market in 2015

One of three French patients testified Tuesday micro Europe 1.

New types of implants to eliminate severe disabilities, there are many others. Bionic now allow members to find the sensation of touch. An artificial hand was tested in January 2013 on a Danish patient 36 years. It is connected to the nerves of the arm, allowing it to have the function of a member almost normal. Dennis Sorensen Aabo he told he had a year ago “could feel sensations” that he “felt most in nine years.” The marketing of this product will be considered “in five years earlier and fifteen years later,” stated at the time Stanisa Raspopovic, one of the participants in the project: “Everything will depend on future clinical trials.”

Bionic hand and barcode reader, new technologies … – The Cross

Entrepreneurs, associations and large companies mobilized around issues of disability were found Thursday 9 and Friday 10 October in Paris at the “Tour of solutions” of Mouves.

On stage, when Nicolas Huchet grabs the mic, nobody notices anything. And yet, the right hand grasps the object is naturally a robot hand, the mechanic of 30 years designed and built himself.

The young Breton presented his project to the sixty association leaders , social entrepreneurs and representatives of major companies gathered at the Paris headquarters of Dawn Association as part of the “Tour of solutions”, organized by the Movement for Social Entrepreneurs (Mouves)

= & gt;. Bionicohand, a bionic hand for less than € 1000

At the age of 18, the young man was amputated forearm after an accident. He can not afford to buy a classic robotic prosthesis, which cost more than € 60,000 and decides to launch itself in the construction of a bionic hand.

For this, the Breton pushes the door Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) to Rennes. The place is an exchange and self-space equipped with 3D printers and other electronic machines, mark “makers”, hackers these artisans who share their knowledge on the Internet. “They welcomed me and said that my crazy project was feasible. I discovered the world of open source (FOSS) and I was able to contact and work with specialists in robotics, prosthetics, encoders … “, demonstrates Nicolas Huchet. After a year and a half, it appears from the laboratory with a lively prosthesis.

Nicolas Huchet just look at the “Tour Solutions” advice and possibly financial partners to proceed to step Next:. improve, and his bionic hand on a larger scale, at a cost not exceeding € 1,000

“The goal is not to create a business for profit says the young man, who has just returned from New York, Rome and St. Petersburg, where he was invited to present his project. I am looking for a model that allows me to try and possibly planting me. One thing is for sure, I want to be part of change. “

” Neither the state nor the market alone can not address the complex social issues such as disability , confirms Jacques Dasnoy, general delegate of Mouves to initiative of the event, solutions can only be collective. “

= & gt; Eticode use barcodes serving visually impaired

Neighbors Nicolas Huchet seat on the stage, Marie-Laure Martin and Olivier Jacques are both visually impaired. Is her attendant, she is physiotherapist. Since 2005, they are working to develop the Eticode program (2).

“The products have barcodes for years. Why not use the service for the visually impaired? “, asked the couple.Grâce a small scanner – the same as those used by supermarket cashiers – the computer program reads the barcode and provides product information to users via oral a synthesized voice

One way for 1.2 million visually impaired people in France to distinguish the two products in comparable form. – a can of insecticide or hairspray, for example – or even know the expiry date of certain products, including medicines. “Eticode for example, allowed a friend visually impaired can continue to care for her sick mother” , cites Marie-Laure Martin.

The project was awarded the Handitech price in 2010. 450 products listed at the beginning, we are today more than 35 000 Connected to a small printer, the system can generate its own barcode to stick to objects used in everyday life.

“We’re not particularly good at computers, explains Olivier in public. We just met people who have similar needs, and we help us to find a simple and collaborative solution. “

= & gt; RogerVoice, the start-up to allow the deaf to call

Another application, still in draft form, RogerVoice aims to transcribe written form calls made from Skype. No application for hearing today will allow a fine automatic transcription, and live in different languages, explains Olivier Jeannel, founder of the start-up bringing the project itself and hard of hearing.

The project collected in one week € 16,000 (US $ 20,000) on a platform of participatory financing, the amount required to program an application for the Android operating system. “We hope to collect the same amount next week, which would allow us to develop the same application on iOS” , Olivier Jeannel smiled.

Connected objects: how to leverage these new … – Marketing Performer

By Anthony Ruff, Associate Director of LSFinteractive, a company specializing in winning and retaining visitors

5 tips to enable companies to implement a CRM approach first operator connected objects.

1. To learn how to master the connected objects already mastered the mobile

Mobile marketing is (finally) taking a heavy weight in the media mix for advertisers. This lever has required the integration of new skills within companies because even if some marketing reflexes are common in traditional web, mobile works with quite different from those of web technologies. For example, it requires the integration of the SDK in your applications to connect to partner solutions, fingerprinting for tracker and a reliable tracking of your users, mastering responsive design for your communications adapt to all screen sizes, etc. Smartphones are the first objects connected you should understand the other (watches, bracelets, scales …) operate on a relatively similar technique principle.

2. Why it makes a difference, moving from the internet internets

The emergence of connected objects is a paradigm shift for the customer relationship. We simply interact with an individual, but also with the items he carries and places through which it passes. So these are three types of relationship we will have to manage rather than just one. This is a new playing field for marketing: there will be 30 billion connected items in 2020 and a number can be as important places connected (the rapid growth of Apple iBeacon is the first sign of this trend background). It is now possible, for example, to follow the path of mobile users in your stores, how often they come and touch them up after they come with ads on mobile.

3. Brands will have to learn to sell services in addition to their products

Providing quality products is no longer sufficient in today’s connected world. Mobile users expect to interact with your product or brand to make their lives easier still, rewarding and enjoyable. Like Nike that tracks performance racing (Nike + Running) or Evian that can order bottles of mineral water straight from the fridge (Evian Smart Drop), brands must expand their ecosystem services to become indispensable to consumers. When will Nespresso application that will sync to my alarm clock to start my coffee within minutes

4. Application: the standard of the relationship with a connected object

Of course the rules , norms and standards need to be built in this area, but use is emerging and to structure: linking object connected or connected to a mobile application in order to control or retrieve information instead. In fact, the smartphone has gradually become the “remote control” of our lives. Permanently in our pocket and associated with a single person (as opposed to the PC or tablet), the smartphone has the ability to absorb all the products and services it touches. Thinking he has already replaced the computer, television, mp3 players, camera, camcorder, game console, the blue card (soon with NFC payment) … We could continue this list for a long time.

5. Do not miss the Corner: so does your survival

Do not underestimate the potential of these applications and the connected objects. They can jeopardize your business in an extremely short time. The father of two young children, I recently discovered by a free application that can replace traditional baby monitor connected together by two smartphones example. So why would I pay 80 € for a classic baby monitor, bulky to carry and impossible to store in my pocket? Feel free to start from scratch: rethink your products and your offer by grafting all the possibilities offered by these new technologies. Nothing worse than trying to duplicate your current offer on an application: Tinder has become a serious competitor to Meetic for this application uses geolocation and lets you instantly meet people close to the place where you are

Moreover, the new trend bracelets connected has already convinced 57% of respondents who plan to use one to monitor their health indicators.

Finally, according to the first results of this survey, less than half (43%) indicated that the provision of these new technologies and services would be a criterion in choosing a senior residence ( with a particular interest in access to family planning animations, video conferencing and file sharing).

In general, be aware that new technologies are moving slowly in all areas of our daily lives. Both in the home (home automation, robotics) that care (telemedicine), the fight against the isolation of the elderly and support for carers (ICT platform and social exchange). It’s a real underlying trend that soon will experience especially seniors and youth, seniors of tomorrow.

New technologies for the visually impaired – RTBF

Chris Alexander at 40, he suffers from a genetic eye disease. For 15 years, his eyesight continues to decline. The key for him is to remain independent despite his disability.

Google Glass, these glasses that allow you to use augmented reality are highly appreciated by fans of new technologies . However, these devices are now perhaps victims of their success. The first case of an addiction to such gadgets has indeed been diagnosed. DGS you tell this unusual story.

Google Glass are fantastic tools augmented reality whose jobs can range from video game to medicine. It now seems that this unit is even become a little too nice to use. and Naval Medical Center San Diego said he first diagnosed person with addiction on Internet use Google Glass . The patient, an employee of the center, was this miniature computer about 18 hours a day and was so used to having it on the head that he developed a tic that made him take his finger to his temple (to turn the power ) after he was asked a question.

After over a month of “withdrawal”, he began to feel better. His tic returned less often and the patient became less irritable and more concentrated. This case raises some concerns about addiction to the adverse effects associated with the wearing of electronic objects mentally. Of course, it is not automatic, even if you use Google Glass , there is no certainty that you become addicted. As stated in the medical center, the same man had a history of alcohol problems, which might explain why it is about to become addicted more easily than other individuals. This one case does not prove possible danger from a connected portable device such as this one.




The case of addiction Google Glass has surprised us. However, this is very isolated and there is probably no reason to worry. In writing, we do not use these devices but we recognize it hard to do without Internet or our phones. Sometimes taking a break to get away from all these electronics do much good :). Do you think all these technological advancements bring more positive than negative things in our society, or is it the opposite?

Lack of training to deal with new technologies … – Courrier Laval

“Should we be afraid? How can we have maximum visibility with the least possible loss of time? How to maximize our visibility, promoting our activities, recruit members and volunteers? Let us also by the good information or do we learn to do otherwise networks?
