The Emodo Challenge:
Data Science vs. COVID-19
As part of Ericsson’s efforts to fight the spread of COVID-19, Emodo is launching the Emodo Challenge, an initiative that unites Ericsson experts to help quell the coronavirus through the application of AI and predictive modeling.
Emodo is a team of data scientists, engineers and mobile advertising experts that has been working for over 10 years on how to safely use carrier data to solve business problems, in a privacy compliant way.
In this challenge, we are currently working on emergency data analysis to help fight COVID-19 and provide our operator customers as well as local and national governments with insights and projections. These solutions will focus on adherence to stay at home directives, predictions on where the virus will strike next, risk of saturating key public services, etc. We believe we can make a difference in this critical period when leveraging data to make decisions quickly is so essential.
We’re inviting qualified Ericsson employees to join the fight. Please let us know if you:
- Have ideas about operators that may be interested
- Have expertise that may be applicable, and/or
- Have an interest in collaborating on solutions
