Eleanor Harding is a product developer and supergeek who has been called the swiss army knife of tech. She is originally from South Africa and has a background in both development and design, helping her win numerous hackathons including the prestigious TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon and the Skype Codess hack for women in tech.

 

Before arriving in London, she created an indie game which won the Microsoft Imagine Cup and was the design engineer in the winning, all-female team in a competition to design and race scale F1 cars.

 

Eleanor is now the founder of a product development consultancy called Rigby/Rose where she spends her time doing what she loves, helping startups turn their big ideas into elegant products. In her spare time she looks for ways to enable people through technology, listens to a ridiculous number of audiobooks and networks furiously.

 

She’d also quite like to go to the moon.

Infected Flight – Tech Crunch Disrupt

1075

Created in just 24 hours, this was the winning Hack at TechCrunch Disrupt EU.

Problem

The results of realistic simulations are hidden in text-based academic papers.
The data is not accessible to the interested public

 



 

Solution

Create a true-to-life model for disease spreading, make it visual, interactive and accessible.
Use it to inform the world while productively raising money.

 



How our model works

The World Population is made up of Susceptible, Exposed, Infected and Recovered People

State changes based on Rate of Infection



 

The World is Moving

Our simulation focuses on Flights as cross-border vehicles to carry diseased individuals



 

Portions of the population travel through 5 locations, each with different rates of infectivity



 

Mathematical modelling
