    COVID-19 Data Tutorial II

    Show Details

    Join us Friday, June 5 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. You can go ahead and join that classroom here:

    https://babylon.house/projects/9282c066-ff77-46d2-8a63-394af6ff5105/join

    If you’d like a very short introduction to using Babylon House as a meeting participant, check out this video: https://youtu.be/RZB2W1R3t3c

    Last time, we explored publicly available data sets and discussed some of the challenges inherent in drawing inferences and making predictions. You can find information from that session (including a Jupyter notebook) here: https://browndsi.github.io/covid19/

    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.

    Hosted by Samuel Watson, Director of Graduate Studies, Data Science Initiative.
