Project summary:

Geek is a project on the epidemiosurveillance of pests based on a new technology tool. The project aims to exploit the Google queries, with the help of Google Trends, to monitor the nowcasting of harmful species. The system could ultimately lead to a volume of data that is unrivaled in time and space, and to anticipate epidemic episodes of these pests, similar to what is achieved today in health Human on the influenza virus.
