The paper was coauthored with Prabhas Pokharel, Mark Johnston, and Vijay Modi.  The abstract is below:

Feedback based on real-time data is increasingly important for ICT-based interventions in the developing world. Applications such as facility inventories, summarization of patient data from community health workers, etc. need processes for analyzing and aggregating datasets that update over time. In order to facilitate such processes, we have created a modular web service for real-time data analysis: bamboo.

If you are interested in using bamboo please see the bamboo service website, the Python library pybamboo and the JavaScript library bamboo.js.
