Frink Receives Award for New Software Tool
Frink developed the software tool to help with a research project that he and other students were engaged in through ThePrivacyPlace.org, a research group founded by Dr. Annie Antón, associate professor of computer science. The tool was used to evaluate online healthcare privacy policies that evolved in response to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Flesh quickly analyzes a document (such as plain text files) and displays the difficulty associated with comprehending it.
Flesh is available for both Mac OS X and Windows. Within days of publishing it, Flesh was downloaded by several hundred users. Frink continues to take feedback and is working to extend its functionality and overall utility.
