Lajos Palanki: The way you approach a problem is more important than the solution itself

Hello, Lajos! Thank you for joining us in our series of interviews. We decided to talk to you because you were one of the foreign participants of the Summer School. Moreover, you decided to continue your education outside of your home country. In your case, you are studying in the UK, but you’re from Hungary.

Let’s first get to know you a bit more…

How does privacy-protecting exposure tracking make sense?

I know you’re all sick of hearing about coronavirus, but hear me out: this is great news. A new update to iOS and Android has introduced coronavirus contact tracing. 

It’s a genius way to help solve one of today’s most pressing issues in a privacy-protecting and efficient manner. Contact tracing in iOS and Android works in a way that lets epidemiologists alert people when they might have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 and tell them to self-isolate, all without anybody knowing who you were with, what you were doing, and where. 

If that sounds too good to be true, get ready for some computer science.
