Big Data Workshop: Using COVID Data Intelligence Programs to make critical decisions in NJ cities and counties
Workshop leaders: George Avirappattu, Kean University; Navin Vembar, Camber; Margaret Piliere, Madhu Chandran Sreekumuran Nair and E. Steven Emanuel, CGI.
This workshop will exemplify academic-industry partnerships. It will focus on the use of data intelligence in providing states, counties, and cities with critical tools during disasters and will be run roughly in two parts. First, demonstrate the use of data intelligence in helping counties and municipalities to model morbidity, mortality, hospitalization and ICU bed rates, transience, vaccinations and school openings/ closings. Second we will look at socioeconomic, structural, and environmental factors that explain the varying impact of COVID-19 to different communities separated by location. We will inspect how these factors have common threads that run across communities and make some more vulnerable than others to various natural disasters including COVID-19.
