Why we exist


In 2020, America experienced a devastating outbreak of COVID-19. Tracking the spread and epidemic curves of this virus at the county level is critical for effective local responses to outbreaks. We attempt to solve this problem by combining county-level socioeconomic, epidemiological, and mobility datasets with state-level case projections and testing data to train machine learning models to predict epidemic curves. Through our collaborations with the COVID-19 Forecast Hub and the NIGMS MIDAS Network, our data is shared with the US CDC to inform our national response.
