The project coronavirus which RMDS data scientists are bringing their capabilities and knowledge together to provide meaningful understandings of the SARS-CoV-2 to society. My role was researching and providing initial assessments of the epidemiological SIR prediction model that RMDS lab built. It was such a valuable experience for me to be working with these great data scientists, and I felt energized being involved in this project as everyone is unbelievably passionate about what they do.

I assisted with exploratory data analysis and tried to identify patterns before and after the social distancing policy took place. I also aggregated county-level data with location and demographic information that prepares for data modeling. Last but not least, I provided help in outreach and planning of the data science competition.

Previous Project Highlights

 

LA Covid-19 Risk Map

Client: Los Angeles City, Esri, SafeGraph

Challenge: The client seeks to create an innovative solution to determine the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in locations in and around the City of Los Angeles. As the city relaxes "Safer at Home" orders, it wants to help people assess the risks of going to various locations (like their local gym, or supermarket) in real-time.

Solution: This solution is an ensemble of machine learning and statistical epidemiological models and uses data about infections, testing, mobility, and social distancing, comorbidity, socioeconomic factors, and other relevant sources to estimate levels of risk. The resulting interactive map shows community-level and POI-level risk of exposure to COVID-19 in Los Angeles County as well as trend analysis and locations of test centers and hospitals.

Highlights:
- Specialized Project Impacter team: we partnered with the City of Los Angeles, the champion team from USC, and the Project Impacter team to implement the solution
- Quick delivery: crowdsource from the vast talent pool of the RMDS Ecosystem to quickly deliver prototype. Over 400 competitors formed teams led by mentors, and 24 unique prototypes were created
- Results-driven: insights to drive policy making, easy to use interface, reproducible methodology is transferable to other counties and extensible to other pandemics
KNIME workflow

Client: Center for Geographic Analysis at Harvard University and Future Data Lab

Challenge: The workflow-based data analysis project aims to provide a new approach for efficient data analysis and replicable, reproducible, and expandable research.

Solution: The implementation of KNIME data analysis workflows for selected case studies with government statistics of China, which include population and environment, urban and rural development, green energy transition, and county-level GDP estimates with nighttime light data.

Highlights:
- Specialized Project Impactor team: sourced from RMDS Ecosystem to find KNIME developers with support from the KNIME team
- Results-driven: over 50 KNIME workflows developed with associated data inputs and analytics results
Hurricane Forecasting Project

Client: Research group from leading center for robotic exploration of space

Challenge: The client looked to create a more nuanced hurricane forecast solution that serves the needs of insurance companies and improves the existing model used by the National Hurricane Center.

Solution:Using various climatology features and other relevant spatial-temporal data, we developed an algorithm and interactive map visualization to predict changes in hurricane intensity in the next 24 hours as well as associated economic loss using machine learning and statistical models.

Highlights:
- Specialized Project Impactor Team: consultant group of engineers and analysts experienced in the topic and tools, selected from our robust and vast scientific community
- Quick delivery: followed our RM4E and ResearchMap solutions development methodologies to quickly deliver the prototype
- Results-driven: solution is catered toward commercial applications, like insurance companies and coastal businesses
Recommender System

Client: RMDS Lab

Challenge: Connect the data science community with useful tools and services

Solution: The RMDS Ecosystem Platform is a one-stop shop for those working on data-driven projects and a plethora of vendors that specialize in a wide variety of data science tools and services. Depending on the intent of the user, we recommend items related to their projects and areas of interest, recent transaction and search history on RMDS, novel discovery, and other factors. The recommendation algorithms are trained both on internal and publicly-available data to recommend the top products from our vendors.

Highlights:
- Large customer base: large community that began over a decade ago who are mostly data scientists, engineers, researchers, and executivesn
- Discoverability: platform is recognized as one-stop shop for all data science tools and products. We increase your discoverability and help with marketing your product via the recommendation system
- Highly targeted: recommendation system connects the right product or service with the right target customer based on recent and historical browsing / purchase history, user profile and project experience, and external, publicly-available data
- High impact audience: ability to target high impact clients with high impact scores
User Impact Score

Client: RMDS Lab

Challenge: A common question we hear is “could you recommend a real data scientist?” The Data Science Impact Score does exactly that - using external sources and the RMDS Platform to validate and quantify a data scientist’s impact in their field. The RMDS Platform is a comprehensive ecosystem that captures a data scientist’s peer-reviewed projects, tools, knowledge, courses, and qualifications.

Solution: The RMDS User Impact Score is a system that measures a data scientist’s practical, tangible impact on society through projects, workflows, and other field-relevant interactions. Using public records and platform user data, the Impact Score demonstrates an individual’s power or capacity to cause a positive effect in direct or intangible ways.

Highlights:
- Useful in Industry: practical impact
- Objectivity: valid and objective measure
- Many use cases: whether you’re looking to identify the highest impact consumer segments, best course instructors, project collaborators, new hires, or mentorship
- Multifaceted: five dimensions to the impact score allowing you to see a complete profile of each data scientist
