People's Choice Semi-Finalist

Airie made it to the People's Choice Semi-Finals (Top 25)


Develop an app or platform to crowd-source information for comparing changes in environmental factors, such as temperature, relative humidity, air pollution, with occurrence of symptoms of allergies and respiratory diseases. Create tools for public entry and grading of symptoms, including but not limited to cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, sneezing, nasal obstruction, itchy eyes; and geographic mapping of symptom frequency and intensity. Create a platform for comparison of symptom map with NASA provided data, with visualization options for web and/or smart phone.


Millions of people have conditions where air quality can drastically change the state of their health. Because such conditions are common, we must find ways to mitigate its effects.

Based on NASA's weather data and crowd-sourced information of current regional airborne illnesses, we help NASA collect data to analyze the correlation between weather and health conditions. Users are able to view daily forecasts before conducting outdoor activities, subscribe to notifications on air quality changes anywhere in the world, and track the progress of your health through health summary reports. An unique feature of Airie is that it allows you to create multiple profiles within the same account so that you can be alerted for warnings for not only you, but also your loved ones.

Helping people navigate through their everyday activities does more than convenience lives. Our vision for Airie is for it to be a mobile app that runs in the background of every mobile phone, allowing users to be better informed and to make better decisions.
