Multilingual Epidemic News Surveillance: Covering the Earth for Timely Alerts

Description : In the age of open and big data, the ability to automatically analyze numerous media written in multiple languages has become more crucial than ever.

This allows health agencies to follow the spread of epidemics in the most reactive fashion, for a better chance to take adequate and timely action.
