Description

Understanding the Impact of Lockdown on Covid-19 Through Simulation

Introduction

AI Monks presents one-of-its kind course on "Understanding the Impact of Lock Down on Covid-19 Through Simulation". The course aims to help students understand simulation and related modelling techniques with respect to the spread of global pandemic Covid-19.

Owning to the spread of global pandemic, governments across the world are facing the challenge to take decision on lock down. On one hand lives of people are at stake; while on the other hand, various economic activities are coming to a standstill. Governments are facing with one of the biggest dilemmas in modern history. Some of the questions that should be answered are:

  • Will imposing lock down have any impact on the spread of the disease?
  • If lock down can restrict the spread of the disease, how it should be phased out?
  • What is the impact of different lock down implementations on spread of the pandemic, like, continuous lock down, periodic lock down, phase-wise lock-down, hot spot lock down, etc.?
  • What are the variables that have maximum impact on the spread of the disease?

For a lot of these questions, it is essential to understand how disease is going to spread in different situation. Since it is not possibly to let the disease spread and then take action, we need to take help of "simulation." Simulation can help us represent various situations through computer models. We can add as many parameters to the simulation model to make it as close to the real-life situation. Based on the various scenarios and possibilities, we can build multiple simulations and take the decision that suits best.

In this course, we will understand how simulation techniques can help us represent and assess the impact of different lock down scenarios. Some of the key topics that will be covered in the course are:
