Our AI in groundbreaking research to predict COVID19 outbreaks in Canada

asiadmin | October 5, 2020  | CoViD-19 | No Comments

The University of Ottawa has teamed up with Advanced Symbolics Incorporated, under the umbrella of the Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (SOSCIP) in order to predict COVID-19 outbreaks in Canada.

This forward-thinking collaboration between the University of Ottawa’s Prof. Yongyi Mao and Advanced Symbolics Inc. aims to use AI to generate predictive models for forecasting and projecting the spread of COVID-19 cases across Canada.

By analyzing anonymized, user-generated data, the researchers expect to be able to determine accurate and timely models of viral spread across the country. Realistically capable of tracking the spread of any infectious disease, this project sets out an ambitious agenda to integrate a wide spectrum of data sources and data modalities as well as a diverse set of modern AI technologies, to fundamentally change the way we track, trace, and cope with epidemics and pandemics.
