MD 2 EPTH: Mobile Data, Dengue in Pakistan; Telenor & Harvard MD 2 EPTH project Does human mobility play a crucial role in the spreading of dengue fever? Investigate the dengue outbreak in Pakistan in 2013 First-ever country-wide effort to understand and model the spread of dengue fever using anonymized mobility data Ultimate goal: design prevention strategies rooted in data-driven methods Dengue Virus affects people worldwide
Dengue fever world-wide Simmons CP et al. N Engl J Med 2012;366:1423-1432.
A number - Caller IMSI: SIM card Cell_ID: Location TAC: Handset Type: Call, SMS, Data, etc For each call, sms and data session: thousands of data points are stored For each call, sms and data session: thousands of data points are stored Date & time B number – Receiving party Data volume 2014.12.11
Telenor Group, Privacy, and Mobile Data We follow the guidelines in the Telenor Privacy Toolbox developed by the Group Privacy Officer In the case of Pakistan there were stricter constraints, coming from questions of national security
A B C Inferring mobility patterns from anonymized call data records (CDRs) CDRs allow us to measure flows of people between regions in Pakistan
Visualizing actual human mobility patterns in Pakistan
A few take-aways If successful the analysis will help predict where and when to prepare for dengue cases Privacy We help solving a problem in the society, which we believe have long-term business value!
