Who we are:
BlueDot protects people around the world from infectious diseases using human and artificial intelligence. Our AI-powered platform combines human expertise with advanced data analytics to track, contextualize, and mitigate infectious disease risks. Our global disease surveillance engine delivers critical early warning and insights on emerging and existing infectious diseases risks — earning us a Governor’s General Innovation award in 2018.
In December 2019, we flagged an undiagnosed respiratory syndrome in Wuhan, China. In January 2020, we published one of the world's first scientific paper on COVID-19, accurately predicting its global spread. Today, the need to better protect lives and livelihoods from infectious diseases is equally urgent for private sector leaders as it is for public officials. Our team understands the complexity of the challenge in front of us – and that the importance of solving the problem has never been greater. At BlueDot, you’ll have the opportunity to help grow a solution to global scale.
We are a Certified B Corp, Diversio certified, and previously recognized as a Best Workplace for Technology, Women and for Giving Back by Great Place to Work. In 2023, BlueDot ranked no. 25 on Globe & Mail's Top Growing Companies and as one of Canada's most impactful companies by Power 50.
