COVID-19 Data Challenge: Navigating Life and Work in Border Communities

Data Science Challenge information

Communities along the U.S.-Mexico border have been hard hit by COVID-19. While researchers race to develop a vaccine, life and work must continue. How can we use data to confidently and transparently decide what is safe? And how can we better understand risk levels in real-time and effectively communicate them to the public? Anyone can sign-up to participate in this data challenge organized by the Border Solutions Alliance and the West Big Data Innovation Hub. The kickoff is August 27th and project info sheets are due by September 13th to be eligible to compete in the pitch competition on September 27th for $5,000 in prizes. Full details are available here.
