Contact Tracing – How to Combine Spatial and Graph Technologies

Contact Tracing – How to Combine Spatial and Graph Technologies

Biography

In times of a pandemic, it is crucial to understand the "spaces", if people have been close enough to each other for long enough to transmit the disease, and the "networks", if people have been involved in any cluster or had interactions with each other via any path. Oracle Database is an evolving converged database, which integrates sophisticated spatial and graph capabilities, and it enables us to extract the contact tracing information from a massive amount of geospatial data as well as to analyze the large networks of people to detect the paths and clusters using graph algorithms and queries. Since privacy issues are the concerns over such systems, it is also important to discuss if Oracle Database, one of the most secure platforms, can technically protect the datasets using its access controls, data masking, and encryption. This session will discuss how to maximize the state-of-the-art database technologies to build advanced contact tracing systems against the future threats of infectious diseases.
