Epidemiological Modelling | 2020
Online lecture by Dr. Stefano Rizzo, Dr. Mohamad Saad, Dr. Sanjay Chawla.
This is the fourth lecture in the series "AI and Data Science for COVID-19 Data" lecture series by the Qatar Center for Artificial Intelligence.
Epidemiological models are compartmental models that simulate the evolution of infectious disease outbreaks. The results of an epidemic simulation strictly depend on the model’s parameters; biological and others related to demographics and lifestyle.
This lecture will introduce the simplest compartmental models. It will also show how it is possible to extend the traditional SIR model, with the final aim of simulating outbreak scenarios under different policies and country’s specifics.
