The idea of combining predictive analytics with the real-time mapping of coronnavirus that has taken off in recent weeks. We wanted a place for users to be able to track their own data to understand their risk of contracting or spreading the virus.
What it does
The map uses both pre-existing population movement data and user-submitted information (both anonymized) to reveal current danger spots along with feeding a prediction model of future spots of concern.
How I built it
Used ReactJS + leaflet to visualize map in frontent. AWS serverless, dynamodb, S3, and lambda. R/Python for Machine Learning
Challenges I ran into
We had 3 teams : User-Interface, Machine Learning, and Databases to structure the core of the POC product. The three teams communicated regularly over shared Slack channels, and designed their workflow according to one another’s needs.
