Alyssa Lane from Vodafone’s DreamLab joined Jonesy & Amanda to chat about the award-winning app and the way it’s being used for good to fast track medical research.

“Australians have faced an unprecedented set of challenges as a result of COVID-19. While most of us do our part by staying home, DreamLab offers people the power to help by simply downloading the app and joining the DreamTeam,” Lane explains.
While traditional experimental research and standard research methods could take years to develop, the mobile cloud-based processing approach of DreamLab can drastically reduce the time taken to analyse the huge amount of data that exists.
She adds, “The agile nature of DreamLab has enabled us to react quickly and temporarily refocus to address COVID-19 and the unprecedented set of circumstances the world is facing.”
And yes, it’s 100% safe – DreamLab does not access personal information on your phone.
