no code implementations29 Aug 2022 Yi-Lin Tsai, Dymasius Y. Sitepu, Karyn E. Chappell, Rishi P. Mediratta, C. Jason Wang, Peter K. Kitanidis, Christopher B. Field

Therefore, we applied an age-structured epidemiological model, known as the Susceptible-Exposed-Infectious-Recovered (SEIR) model, to investigate to what extent different vaccine uptake levels and the Diversion protocol implemented in Taiwan decrease infections and delay pandemic peak occurrences.

Improving debris flow evacuation alerts in Taiwan using machine learning

no code implementations27 Aug 2022 Yi-Lin Tsai, Jeremy Irvin, Suhas Chundi, Andrew Y. Ng, Christopher B. Field, Peter K. Kitanidis

Towards improving this system, we implemented five machine learning models that input historical rainfall data and predict whether a debris flow will occur within a selected time.

Routing algorithms as tools for integrating social distancing with emergency evacuation
