Jerusalem start-up looks to help eliminate malaria in Africa
A Jerusalem-based company believes it can help the world battle malaria more effectively, and this week, Zzapp Malaria came in first place in the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE competition for its AI-based mobile app and dashboard that proposes an optimal strategy for individual towns and villages struggling with the disease.
Zzapp beat out more than 10,000 applicants for the award, which was launched in 2016 to promote the use of AI to solve the world’s most pressing problems. Zzapp was awarded a $3 million prize to support further development, and also won a People’s Choice Award as the “Most Inspiring Team.”
