Air by Propeller is a set of free tools to help people understand current asthma conditions in their neighborhoods.
Air is an open application programming interface (API), a one-of-a-kind model that applies machine-learning to data from Propeller and environmental sources. Led by Propeller data scientists and clinical researchers, the Air API predicts how asthma may be affected by local conditions.
Air also includes a series of tools that share local asthma conditions. Air tools are built from the Air API and range from an email or text subscription, to an embeddable Air Widget for other websites.
Understand how your asthma may be affected with different Air tools that fit into your life, or share local asthma conditions by creating tools with the Air API.
Build your own tools from Propeller data. The Air API allows individuals and organizations to use local asthma conditions to help people with asthma.
