FatBrain LLC, an enterprise AI software pioneer in dynamic risk intelligence solutions, is excited to announce that starting today, individual citizens can determine the specific COVID-19 threat level within their community with a free online app called CovidRisk.Live. The app is located at http://www.covidrisk.live and is accessible online for free.
CovidRisk.Live provides clarity on the individual risk facing the American people daily. Today’s COVID-19 online resources only provide high-level state, federal or global information, lacking local community data. This ends Monday, as anyone using a zip code will get an instant, consumable, and actionable guidepost on the level of COVID risk within their community or will be able to check on COVID-19 risk in the community of their family and friends. By making a local report available to the public, http://www.covidrisk.live will help to change the course of the pandemic by informing personal decision-making!
Much of the COVID-19 data and information presented to Americans is not actionable from a personal standpoint, making it difficult to understand if it is safe in one’s community and if so, how fast the economy can reopen. CovidRisk.Live addresses the uncertainties, fears, and confusions by explaining the current state of the COVID-19 risk within the community with an easy to understand risk level.
The CovidRisk.Live app quantifies the COVID-19 risks including the viral transmission rate, daily active cases, and government policies and countermeasures into an easy-to-consume score or threat level (severe, high, elevated, guarded, low). CovidvRisk Live uses a familiar scale as popularized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to communicate the probability of a terrorist attack on domestic soil.
“Starting Monday, anyone can get clarity on whether they or their family and friends face a severe risk, low risk, or somewhere in between for COVID-19 within their community,” shares Peter B. Ritz, CEO FatBrain LLC, “CovidRisk.Live helps minimize the confusion and provides everyone with a simple, consumable, explainable, and quantifiable way to see the threat level within their community. This capability is critical as each of us can use this tool to exercise personal agency to influence the impact of active policies for the broader community outcomes. COVID-19 is not like an asteroid or an earthquake where we are helpless — rather together we can win, guided by using CovidRisk.Live and similar tools to bolster smart cooperation.”
The advanced math and epidemic modeling needed for quantifying an accurate threat level is led by FatBrain’s Chief Science Officer (CSO) Rajarshi Das, former AI/ML lead at IBM Watson Lab, the Los Alamos National Lab and the Sante Fe Institute, and FatBrain’s international team of data scientists.
“The modeling is based on an approach we’re calling ‘Covid2vec’, inspired by advances in language and brain understanding, and uses an integrative, auditable, explainable, and continuous representation of COVID-19 risk at multiple levels e.g., symptoms, infections, testing, cases, treatments, locations, policies, and economic impact,” adds Das, “The inaugural version of CovidRisk.Live uses advanced epidemiological modeling, fine grained case to fatality information, community health data, and the unemployment vulnerability associated with one’s community. Our framework enables CovidRisk.Live to continuously integrate up-to-date innovations in testing, treatment, and policy outcomes into forward decision-making, on a weekly and sometimes daily basis.”
In addition to launching the CovidRisk.Live Index, FatBrain has shared its risk intelligence knowledge and expertise for policy makers and general readership to leverage for free on its website (link goes here). Media companies, news outlets, and community-based websites are encouraged to apply for publishing rights to embed CovidRisk.Live into their web and TV properties.
