2020 – Present: ML Engineer for OmdenaAI’s Global Pandemic Challenge

I am among the 52 collaborators from 21 countries working on an 8-week AI challenge titled Coronavirus: Using AI to Understand the Repercussions on the Economically marginalized during Pandemics.

In this challenge, we aim to help governments and policymakers to make data-driven decisions in order to deal with pandemics. When travel is restricted, schools closed, events cancelled, and communities put into quarantine, individuals and businesses in those ecosystems lose their source of income. How does that loss of income impact the health and financial stability of those individuals?
