Dear Colleagues,

Can someone put me in contact with any researchers who might know about 
smartphone software capable of detecting hands touching the face? That 
is certainly a primary pathway for the spread of COVID-19. I’m working 
with behavioral scientists who hope to extinguish face touching through 
established techniques such as operant conditioning. Software that 
automated detection could speed up their work considerably. Please 
forward contact information for anyone you think might help. This is 
obviously a matter of urgency if we are to slow the pandemic 
transmission rate and flatten the curve.

Thanks, Jim Pomerantz, pomeran at rice.edu.
