Our submission for the Financial Times Legal Challenge Hackathon

Abstract

The ‘Opening Up After Lock Down’ [O.U.A.L.D.] team presents an application that allows organisations to open up after lock down more easily. The application allows a many to one contract between provider and customer and provider and its partners, simplifying the relationships between parties such as Universities and their partners, staff and students, shopping malls and the shop tenants, partners services and customers. The application allows use of technologies such as that provided by KroniKare to mass screen people, checking for elevated temperature, a key symptom of COVID19. To help address privacy concerns and manage GDPR the system also employs personal data accounts from DataSwift, making each user the data controller, holding copies of all their own data.

This project was featured in the Financial Times (Amy Bell , Doctors add a dose of medical insight to FT coronavirus hackathon, 17 June 2020).
