Who we are: 
BlueDot protects people around the world from infectious diseases using human and artificial intelligence. Our platform combines medical and public health expertise with advanced data analytics to track, contextualize, and mitigate infectious disease risks. Our global early warning system combines more than 100 datasets with proprietary algorithms to deliver critical insights on the spread of emerging and existing infectious diseases. In December 2019, we flagged an undiagnosed respiratory syndrome in Wuhan, China. In January 2020, we published the world's first scientific paper on COVID-19, accurately predicting its global spread. More than two years later, the need to better protect lives and livelihoods from infectious diseases is now as urgent for private sector leaders as it was for public officials. Our team understands the complexity of the challenge in front of us – and that the importance of solving the problem has never been greater. At BlueDot, you’ll have the opportunity to help grow a solution to a global scale.
