Tráfico en las Rutas Al Contenido (TRAC): Identifiying the access to the Content in Latin-America during the COVID-19 lockout
This project develops and verifies techniques to identify the locations where the content consumed in Latin America is served, that is, the so-called Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Since CDNs serve the majority of Internet traffic, identifying how content is distributed will increase knowledge of the Internet in Latin America. This objective has been highlighted with the increase in Internet use during the COVID-19 pandemic. The objectives of this project are:
(1) Determine the locations from where popular content is served in Latin America,
(2) Identify transit providers and Traffic Exchange Points (IXPs) in accessing content,
(3) Develop techniques to identify possible congestion in the access routes to the content.

trace-vi: To help establish potentially infected people while respecting their privacy in the COVID-19 pandemic
It is an application for the cell phone that helps in monitoring people to identify those who may have been infected, and thus be able to fence the virus more.
The centrality of our proposal is the privacy of people
assuring its users that no one will reconstruct the history of their positions.
In particular, we are working with the UBA Clinic Hospital to help diagnose this hospital's health personnel early.
In this case, we are working together with the group of Dr. Jorge Ierache of the Faculty of Engineering and the doctors Ignacio Fernandez Criado and Juan Ingelmo of the Hospital de Clínicas.
