Killexams : The Mixed Success of COVID Exposure Notification Apps
July 28, 2022

Technology can be a powerful tool in efforts to save lives and stabilize shaky economic conditions. It can also help preserve vestiges of normalcy amid a global pandemic. During the COVID-19 pandemic, public interest technology tools, like COVID smartphone apps, were intended to augment personal preventative measures, like social distancing and masks. As COVID proliferated in 2020, many governments tried to harness new tools to slow the spread. But all new tools face the same challenge: How do you get people to use them? Efficacy hinges on adoption and, in the case of technology, implementation.

Since the earliest days of the pandemic, California has leveraged technology and policy to become a leader in the fight to slow the transmission of COVID. Other states also used technology to address the public health crisis, but California’s robust portfolio of pandemic-related apps and software sets the state apart. At the start of the pandemic, California residents could find the latest COVID data in an online hub. Later, they used their smartphones to schedule vaccinations and get their digital vaccine passports. An exposure notification app helped people determine if they’d been in close contact with someone infected with COVID.

To date, more than 9.6 million cases of COVID have been reported in California and the official death toll has surpassed 91,000. How effective were the Golden State’s efforts to keep its residents healthy and safe? Were Californians receptive to using the tools and apps developed to help them? Was the effort necessary to roll out these public technology responses worth it? The results are mixed.

Silicon Valley’s Role in Stopping the Spread

California’s statewide exposure notification app—CA Notify—wasn’t the first of its kind released in the United States, that was Virginia’s Covidwise. But CA Notify, Covidwise, and the apps of 20 other states and the District of Columbia are built upon exposure notification technology developed through a Silicon Valley partnership.

The Google Apple Exposure Notifications framework uses a smartphone’s Bluetooth signal to determine a person’s potential exposure by measuring how long and how close phones have been near each other. If one phone’s user later tests positive for COVID, the app notifies the users of the phones that were in proximity to it. Those phones receive a push notification urging users to take steps to prevent the transmission of coronavirus to others, like testing or quarantining.

The California Department of Public Health opted to use the Google/Apple Exposure Notification Express for its CA Notify app. EN Express is a ready-to-use option that allowed for rapid development of the app as COVID ravaged the state. But, once the app launched statewide, privacy and other concerns deterred residents from downloading or using it.

App Uptake Stymied by Privacy Concerns

According to a May 2020 study, Americans’ willingness to actually install and use a COVID app hinges on three main factors: benefit, accuracy, and privacy. Researchers from Microsoft and several universities surveyed 4,500 Americans through questionnaires.

“All of us at Apple and Google believe there has never been a more important moment to work together to solve one of the world’s most pressing problems. Through close cooperation and collaboration with developers, governments and public health providers, we hope to harness the power of technology to help countries around the world slow the spread of COVID-19 and accelerate the return of everyday life.”

“Apple and Google Partner on COVID-19 Contact Tracing Technology,” press release, April 10, 2020.

Survey results indicate that motivation to use the app is directly linked to the public or personal health benefits of using an app. People who know someone who died from COVID are five times as likely to install an app, even if it’s not 100 percent accurate. Further, survey respondents were 65 percent more willing to install an app that reports false positives than false negatives.

CA Notify doesn’t collect or exchange any personal information about its users. Instead, users’ phones share anonymous keys—randomly generated strings of numbers—when Bluetooth is turned on. These keys are used to create a log of contacts who came within six feet for more than 15 total minutes over the past two weeks. Keys are frequently changed, never stored on devices, and the identity of a COVID-positive person is never shared. The app automatically deletes information after 14 days, after which it cannot be recovered. But, even with safeguards in place for apps like CA Notify, privacy concerns remain.

Privacy and doubts about efficacy were also barriers to app usage, according to a 2021 research report from the Brennan Center for Justice, a nonpartisan policy and law organization. It characterized exposure notification apps in the United States as having “over­prom­ised and under­delivered,” a “failure” primarily stemming from poor uptake. More than 70 percent of Americans said they wouldn’t get a COVID app because of concerns about protecting their digital privacy. “If Amer­ic­ans’ concerns about privacy resul­ted in decreased parti­cip­a­tion in the expos­ure noti­fic­a­tion apps, it also under­mined their useful­ness.”

Bluetooth and GPS Weren’t “Made For This”

Apps like CA Notify are interchangeably referred to as “contact tracing” and “exposure notification systems,” but they are actually the latter. Exposure notification systems, like CA Notify, don’t track or trace your personal information to flag a COVID exposure. Rather, they measure how close your smartphone was to another smartphone whose user reported an exposure or infection.

True contact tracing is how public health crises, like outbreaks of sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, are managed. In that case, health care providers personally contact individuals who test positive and ask them for the names of everyone with whom they’ve had intimate contact.

Digital contact tracing apps simplify this process by leveraging GPS location data to notify a smartphone user if they were within close proximity to someone with COVID and where the contact occurred. As a result, contact tracing apps that rely upon GPS have privacy issues around location data that apps using Bluetooth don’t have. GPS-based apps also drain phone batteries and might not be accurate beyond a distance of 65 feet, according to Wirecutter’s privacy and security editor Thorin Klosowski, in a November 2020 article.

However, Klosowski also argued that exposure notification apps that rely on Bluetooth, like CA Notify and similar apps, aren’t necessarily any better. Bluetooth measures proximity, but it cannot take into account other factors, such as how people are separated (like by a plexiglass barrier in a grocery store or an apartment building wall) or whether they are masked. “Bluetooth and GPS weren’t made for this function, so quirks in the technologies may prohibit them from being effective,” wrote Klosowski.

Other experts agree.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is a San Francisco-based nonprofit that advocates for digital rights and privacy. “We don’t have evidence that this works at scale. We don’t have evidence that it works in a lot of different places and a lot of different types of communities,” Gennie Gebhart, EFF’s activism director, said in an interview with Klosowski.

University College London researchers reviewed more than 100 studies on automated COVID contact tracing, like smartphone apps, and concluded that the contact-tracing technologies they studied showed no empirical evidence of effectiveness in identifying infected contacts or reducing disease transmission.

Measuring an App’s success

The state of California is telling a different story. “Our preliminary analyses using mathematical modeling suggest CA Notify may have prevented thousands of new COVID-19 cases and averted hundreds of deaths in California since its launch” on December 10, 2020, according to an email from CDPH’s communications office.

CA Notify is available to both Android and iPhone users equally, but their ease of use varies. While iPhone users only need to enable exposure notifications in their phone’s settings, Android users must get the app and activate it. In 14 months, according to CDPH, 16.5 million cell phone users activated the app on both platforms, resulting in 1.19 million exposure notifications being sent out to users in California. By comparison, more than 4.2 million cases of COVID were reported statewide from December 2020 through December 2021.

By the state’s estimates, about 52 percent of its 31.9 million residents aged 15 and older eligible to activate CA Notify actually did so. (The app’s terms of service require users to be at least 13 years old.) But state officials said that privacy reasons make them unable to determine how many Android users disabled or deleted the app after downloading it.

Serving the Most Vulnerable

Whether Californians benefited from CA Notify might depend on the type of smartphone they use. PC Magazine estimates that in California, 40 percent of smartphone owners use Android devices, versus 58 percent for iPhone. Given iPhone’s significantly higher price than Android until latest years, and the additional labor required to activate the app on an Android device, the findings around who used the app aren’t surprising.

“The essential workers at the grocery store or the fast-food restaurant are more likely to be Android users and appear less likely to have activated the system,” Christopher Longhurst, chief medical officer and chief digital officer for UC San Diego Health, told the California Health Care Foundation in March 2021. He oversaw a pilot test of CA Notify and its rollout to UC campuses and other UC health systems. Seniors, another vulnerable group, Longhurst said, are less likely to own any kind of smartphone.

Longhurst’s concerns about vulnerable groups being left behind are backed by research. Age, education, and income are determinants in smartphone ownership. According to a June 2021 survey from Pew Research Center, people who said they owned a cellphone that wasn’t a smartphone were more likely to be age 65 and older, have a high school diploma or less, or live in a household with an annual income of $30,000 or less. “While [the survey] couldn’t explain why someone owned a smartphone, it painted a clear demographic picture as to who did, and didn’t, own a smartphone,” said Monica Anderson, associate director of research at Pew Research.

“We cannot ‘tech’ ourselves out of this pandemic.”

Gennie Gebhart, activism director with the Electronic Frontier Foundation

Poverty and related systemic inequities have been linked to more COVID cases and deaths in Indigenous, Black, and Latina/o communities. These groups’ overrepresentation among essential workers is one reason.

According to the Urban Institute, more than half of Black, Indigenous, and Latina/o workers have jobs that must be done in person, compared to 41 percent of white workers. Black, Indigenous, and Latina/o workers are more likely to have jobs that put them at a greater risk of being exposed to or being infected with COVID, earn less money, and are less likely to have health insurance. In addition, essential workers are more frequently caregivers to children and seniors, and are more likely to be aged 50 and over, according to the Center for Economic and Policy Research.

The very people who were most at risk for COVID exposure were also the least likely to use, or even be able to access, the exposure notification apps that might have protected them.

Battling Mistrust of Both Government and Tech

Aside from accessibility issues, a lack of trust in government surfaces time and again as the primary reason why people did not want to use a technology tool that had the potential to save lives. When it came to CA Notify, Americans distrusted how their personal information would be used, who designed and produced the tool, and the app’s efficacy.

The Public Affairs Pulse Survey, conducted by the nonpartisan Public Affairs Council (PAC), surveys Americans' opinions on business and government. From 2012 to 2017, the tech sector ranked at the top of the list for trustworthiness, but its ranking gradually slipped over the next few years. In 2021, PAC reported that tech fell into sixth place. Of the survey f respondents, 32 percent considered the sector to be less trustworthy than other industries, like banks and auto, and only 16 percent said it is more trustworthy.

Mounting tensions over the tech industry’s under-regulation and mergers, antitrust scrutiny of the tech industry and the spread of misinformation by Big Tech have led to a steep decline in trust of the sector. “[We’ve] seen a gradual decline in trust in the technology industry,” PAC’s report asserts, “and [an accompanying] rise in public appetite for more oversight of tech firms.”

So, what can we learn from CA Notify’s development and rollout? EFF’s Gebhart sums it up best: “We cannot ‘tech’ ourselves out of this pandemic.” The state of California should be applauded for its attempt to work with private sector tech companies to adapt existing technologies—while preserving people’s right to privacy—for the public good.

But any future apps designed and implemented for public adoption should heed the lessons from CA Notify. It is the government’s responsibility to serve all residents equitably, regardless of income, location, race, or ethnicity. Technology is not currently accessed in our nation such that tech solutions offer an equitable experience for all. Any government effort that relies on technology must take this reality into account.

Are tech-driven solutions to public health crises—and other types of social problems—the future? Yes. But in order for these solutions to be effective, they must be rooted in better integration of government, technology, and the people being served by both.

The past few weeks have been filled with many news coming from Microsoft, as the company has unveiled a new strategy for Windows Phone, announced massive job cuts from its Nokia mobile phone business and has been busy with frequent Windows 10 builds. Things are changing at Microsoft and today another decision has been made to better organize the company’s resources.

health and fitness windows app retired

Microsoft has started informing users Photosynth, MSN Food & Drink, MSN Health & Fitness and MSN Travel apps will be discontinued. To be frank, as a Windows user, I’ve always felt like these default MSN apps weren’t relevant and there weren’t too many users out there with a real interest in them. And now it seems that Microsoft is getting it, as well.

Photosynth is a software application that analyzes digital photographs and generates a three-dimensional model of the photos and a point cloud of a photographed object. Microsoft has now announced that it will be killing of the Photosynth apps for Windows Phone and iOS users, losing developer support and being pulled from the stores. Microsoft said the following on the Photosynth website:

We are doing this because the new Photosynth Preview technology and its cloud processing is a more immersive way to capture a place than the spherical panoramas that our apps produce

If you have some panoramas created with the apps, Microsoft urges you to upload them to Photosynth.net, which the company is going to keep. You can then choose to share them or set as private. The MSN Travel and MSN Food & Drink for Windows, iOS, and Android will be discontinued on September 28th while MSN Health & Fitness will be discontinued on November 1st. Microsoft said the following:

travel windows app retired

We regularly evaluate our business to ensure we’re focused on the areas where our users find the most value. We will continue to support those apps with broad consumer appeal including News, Weather, Sports and Money, which will be made available as apps on Windows 10 and will remain cross platform.

Thus, as these apps are no longer being supported, they will not be coming with Windows 10. Frankly, I like this move and I believe it will deliver the upcoming OS a cleaner aspect and will cut down on the amount of bloatware.

Killexams : Microsoft Teams down for thousands of users

Microsoft Corp said on Wednesday it was investigating an outage where users were unable to access Microsoft Teams or leverage any features on the app.

“We've received reports of users being unable to access Microsoft Teams or leverage any features. We're investigating the issue and further updates can be found in your Service Health Dashboard via TM402718," read a tweet from the official Microsoft account for updates on certain service incidents.

“We’ve determined that a latest deployment contained a broken connection to an internal storage service, which has resulted in impact. We’re working to direct traffic to a healthy service to mitigate impact. Additional information can be found in the admin center under TM402718," Microsoft tweeted.

Microsoft's Teams app was down for more than 3,000 users, according to outage tracking website Downdetector.com.

Other big technology companies have also been hit by outages in the past year, with a near six-hour disruption at Meta Platforms keeping WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger out of reach for billions of users last October.

Killexams : Digital Mental Health Platforms Can Boost Student Well-Being

Nearly every college student owns some type of mobile device, with one 2015 survey showing that 98 percent of students had one. Smartphone use remains on the rise among children and teenagers, who are, in many cases, growing up on their devices. To meet students and prospective students on those devices, higher education institutions have found ways to bring themselves into the mobile world, whether that’s through the growing field of m-learning or by offering things like real-time parking data through a mobile app.

Meanwhile, concerns over student mental health have also come to the forefront. A recent Student Voice survey of 2,000 undergraduate college students found that 56 percent rated their mental health as “fair” or “poor,” and that 17 percent had experienced the most severe symptom, suicidal ideation, while in college.

Those two realities have led to the creation of a fairly new type of tool for colleges and universities: digital platforms designed to Boost student mental health. The most common of these platforms are not intended as an answer to acute mental health crises but are instead focused more broadly on student wellness, helping to manage the everyday stresses that students feel and highlight resources for assistance on college campuses. These tools could help mitigate mental health issues or allow students to better recognize their symptoms.

Nathaan Demers, a clinical psychiatrist, former college counselor and a vice president at Grit Digital Health, helped develop the YOU at College platform in partnership with Colorado State University. For Demers and others, creating an application students and faculty felt comfortable, safe and secure using was crucial. To get around the stigma associated with using a mental health app or mental health services, they focused on the term “well-being” instead. They built a tool that would provide campus and in-app resources while also sending those in need of counseling or other mental health services upstream toward those options.

“Not every student needs counseling,” says Demers. “If a student is struggling with, let’s say, basic needs, let’s make sure that student can get those needs met. Let’s really help get students through the right doors on campus.”

Protecting User Data Through Aggregation and Anonymity

Because of the negative stigma still attached to mental illness and the use of mental health services, and because of the sensitive nature of the information people may be sharing, providing an app that was 100 percent trustworthy and anonymous was an imperative for the developers at YOU and for the more than 200 colleges and universities that now use the service.

“We knew that if students had any inclination that their educators, their faculty members, their RAs or the folks at the universities who work with them would have access to data indicating whether they’re having a substance abuse problem or some other type of sensitive information, that it would be a huge barrier to using the tool,” says Andrew Baker, vice president of product at Grit Digital. “Student privacy and confidentiality has always been a core, foundational principle, both in the design as well as in the technical software engineering.”

To accomplish that, YOU is typically tied to a university’s single sign-on solution, allowing the platform to authenticate with a firewall that’s already in place to certain user privacy.

Among many other places, the platform has been adopted and vetted by the California State University system, where IT leaders undertook a four-step review of the tool that included a review of YOU’s accessibility, vendors, data security policy and technical launch procedures, according to Candice Chick, who helps manage the platform along with student wellness and mental health at California State University, Long Beach.

Chick adds that the university uses Microsoft Azure as its single sign-on solution as part of a “very tight ship” that Cal State Long Beach runs regarding student data privacy.

In addition to in-depth vetting and single sign-on integration, Baker says YOU’s data storage tool immediately decouples personally identifiable information from data on user behavior. That second set of data, in turn, does get aggregated and shared with the partner universities to help them learn about their students’ interests and needs.

“The university partners that we work with, they really want this rich data about what students are browsing and when they’re browsing, but we deliver that in an anonymized and aggregated way,” says Baker.

Meanwhile, to create a sense of confidence for users, Baker says most colleges and universities are also creating spaces on their domains to house the platform. (At Colorado State, it can be found at you.colostate.edu, for example).

Getting Students What They Need, Where They Want It

Chick says that once students are comfortable with the platform, they can use the YOU app to find on-campus jobs, connect with their advisers, track their sleep, watch TED Talks and more.

All of that mobile interaction can help students relax then and there — there are breathing exercises on the platform too — or steer them to the next stop in their journey to better mental health and fitness.

“YOU is advertised on our campus as a one-stop shop where you can explore the opportunity for help,” says Chick. “We want students to know we’re here for them and that there are tools to support them. And if they don’t necessarily want to reach out and meet with someone or be on campus, then they can do it in a virtual way.”

For those who are in acute mental health crisis, the platform does offer links to 24-hour local and national resources like the national suicide prevention lifeline, and the YOU interface includes a button for users to hit if they feel they are in crisis.

Chick and Demers agree that, for most users, the app serves as an introduction to mental health before they access any kind of in-person or telehealth mental health treatment — something 68 percent of students say they have never done, according to the Student Voice survey.

“Maybe students identify what’s going on with them and say, ‘I just saw that thing about stress management. Maybe I want to go try a support group and go to one of their meetings,’” says Chick. “Maybe it’s a part of their discovery.”

“Most of our users enter looking for help with finances or grades, because what student isn’t concerned about that?” says Demers. “But most visited is all the mental health information on stress, anxiety and sleep. The side door is really important to get students to this content.”

Killexams : Microsoft Q4 falls short of expectations, but Azure set to drive double digit growth this year
Satya Nadella

Ukraine, China, COVID, its own LinkedIn advertisers - whoever’s to blame, it all leads to one reality which is that Microsoft just missed its numbers thank to “evolving macro-economic conditions and unforeseen items”.

The company still turned in a Q4  profit of $16.7 billion on revenue of $51.9 billion, up 12% year-on-year. But Intelligent Cloud revenue of $20.9 billion fell short of what Wall Street was looking for, although Azure and other cloud services revenue was up 40% year-over-year. And problems with PC production out of China cost the firm around $300 million in revenue, while $126 million in operating expenses was attributed to scaling back operations in Russia.

Against that backdrop, CEO Satya Nadella was in determinedly upbeat mode, arguing that Microsoft Cloud quarterly revenues surpassed $25 billion for the first time. There is ongoing interest in Azure, he said:

Organizations in every industry continue to choose our cloud to align their IT investments with demand. We are seeing larger and longer-term commitments and won a record number of $100 million-plus and $1 billion-plus deals this quarter. We have more data center regions than any other provider, and we will launch 10 regions over the next year.

Our new Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty helps public sector customers meet urgent compliance, security and privacy requirements. With Azure Arc, we are meeting customers where they are enabling companies like GM, Greggs, UBS and Uniper to run applications across on-prem edge and multi-cloud environments. We are seeing more customers move their mission-critical workloads to Azure.

American Airlines, for example, chose our cloud to run its key operational workloads, including its data warehouse. And Telstra will move its internal IT workloads to Azure. And we are the platform of choice for SAP apps on the cloud. Leaders in every industry, including Kraft Heinz, Fujitsu and Unilever have migrated ERP workloads to Azure. 

The need to do more with less is driving Azure interest, he said:

What's happening in Azure is, in some sense, businesses trying to deal with the overall macro-economic situation and trying to make sure that they can do more with less. So for example, moving to the cloud is the best way to shape your spend with demand uncertainty, right? In fact, if anything, one of the things that we're seeing is an increased shift towards the cloud. And then, of course, optimizing your bill. We are incenting even our own field to ensure that the bills for our customers come down.

That, in fact, even shows up in some of the volatility in our Azure numbers because that's one of the big benefits of the public cloud. And that's why I think coming out of this macro-economic crisis, the public cloud will be even a bigger winner because it does act as that deflationary force. That's sort of what we are seeing in the Azure numbers. We will be exposed to consumer-driven businesses and SMBs. But at some level, our strength as a company is much stronger in the core commercial. So I think that we'll do fine there. The other one is also people building new applications at a completely new frontier.

The firm’s industry cloud offerings are also seeing strong adoption, he added:

For example, Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, inclusive of Nuance, is becoming the platform of choice for companies across the health care value chain, looking to drive meaningful clinical and financial outcomes. Whether it's a provider modernizing care delivery, a health plan transforming the member experience or a retailer expanding into health services, having a technology partner that is truly dedicated to empowering their success is a significant differentiator for us. Intermountain Healthcare, for example, chose the Cloud for Healthcare as well as Nuance's DAX Ambient Intelligence solution as the pillar of its new digital strategy.

Wall Street was commendably calm about numbers falling short of expectations, buoyed perhaps by Microsoft’s forecast that Azure will drive revenue growth by double digits in the coming fiscal year.  Alphabet has also turned in numbers that showed slower growth. All eyes will now be on The Company Formerly Known As Facebook, which opens up its financial kimono later today.
