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.


Our solution will include a user-friendly app where you can find information about the levels of air pollution in your local community and also compare it to other parts of the world. We will also pinpoint the impact air pollution has on human health, how it is affecting the user of the app and how you can avoid the hours when there is the most pollution in your local area.

By using machine learning we can find patterns in the local area and put a diagnosis to the user for a life with better health.

In the long turn, we would want to spread awareness about air pollution's impact on human health and the environment.
