Past Funded Opportunities

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.

Case Study

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.

 

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.
