  • Patent number: 11615887
    Abstract: The invention generally relates to a method and system for utilizing an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based technology for tracking human mobility patterns and contact points, via a Software Development Kit (SDK) integrated into client device applications. The SDK performs contact tracing by recording past and current signal data/measurements of Wi-Fi access points encountered by a client device and stores these measurements in a local memory of the client device. The SDK further analyses the recorded past and current signal data/measurements of the Wi-Fi access points using an AI module to derive mobility patterns of user of the client device. The AI module of the SDK then identifies other client devices that the client device may have encountered based on analyzing the mobility patterns of the user of the client device and the recorded past and current signal data/measurements and via performing Wi-Fi network sniffing.
