Lifesaver - Predicting emerging pandemics

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Mathematical Modelling and Operations

Finger Food Advanced Technology Group, which specializes in offering technology solutions to emerging problems, is leading the development of a new tool to better forecast emerging pandemics. This platform will enable decision-makers to better predict emergencies and regional needs, thus allowing for effective planning and deployment of resources. There is currently no publicly available source of predictive data suitable for rapidly changing crises such as this pandemic. Using a dataset optimized for predictive modelling, this collaborative project can aggregate data from public sources, health authorities and medical institutions, in addition to incorporating weather and travel conditions.
