TODAY! Please join the Data Science Initiative today at 12 PM for a videoconference discussion of COVID-19 data. We will also use a chat system called Babylon House for facilitating the discussion. Last time, we explored publicly available data sets and discussed some of the challenges inherent in drawing inferences and making predictions. This time we’ll explore methods for estimating the crucially important quantity Rₜ (the average number of new infections generated by each infectious individual, at time t). The discussion will be accessible, introducing the data analysis tools we’ll use along the way. This virtual event is hosted by Samuel Watson, Director of Graduate Studies, Data Science Initiative.
