Title: CRISPER: COVID-19 Real-time Information System for Preparedness and Epidemic Response

Zoom Link

Abstract: A major challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic has been the need to share data and information public while protecting data privacy.  Effective communication of real-time data is critical for informing risk assessment and decision making, and to support a unified national response. Real-time dashboards have become important platforms for information sharing during the COVID-19 pandemic. This presentation will describe the development of CRISPER, a COVID-19 Real-time Information System for Preparedness and Epidemic Response, including the challenges experience.  CRISPER includes a suite of interactive visualisation and mapping tools and automatic alerts for COVID-19 cases, deaths, testing, and contact tracing exposure sites across Australia. The system also allows the use of differential privacy algorithms to protecting data privacy.
