“We’re following up this week’s earlier call to action with two companion forecasting challenges to help answer a subset of the NASEM/WHO questions on COVID-19:
COVID-19 Global Forecasting Challenge
COVID-19 California Forecasting Challenge
About these challenges
The primary goal is not only to forecast accurately, but to find factors that impact transmission rate of COVID-19. You are encouraged to pull in, curate, and share data sources that might be helpful. If you find variables that look like they impact the transmission rate, please share your findings in a notebook.
Next important deadline
