Researchers use AI to build COVID-19 predictions

Editor's Note

Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York, are using data collected from around the world by Johns Hopkins University to build prediction models that take advantage of artificial intelligence (AI) to track COVID-19 and predict where it might surge next.

The models examine trends and patterns from 50 countries where COVID-19 infections are the highest and can predict within a 10% margin of error what will happen for the next 3 days based on the data for the past 14 days.

The main use of this study is to help hospitals and healthcare workers prepare for a surge with proper equipment and hospital beds, the researchers say.
