Social Media Prove a Reliable Predictor of COVID-19 Waves: U of G Study

A veterinary and computer science research team led by professors Dr. Rozita Dara (School of Computer Science) and Dr. Shayan Sharif (Department of Pathobiology) has developed a system using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to detect outbreak locations and predict infectious diseases’ capacity to spread further.
