Start Helmholtz-IPV Pilot-Project SIMCARD

Together with DZNE and HITS we will develop novel Machine Learning methods that are robust and reliable for large networks and reach beyond simple predictions from 2020 to 2023. The project adresses data-intensive applications in Biomedicine and weather forecasts in particular.

German & Polish Covid-19 ForecastHub

Since May 2020 we have built up the German and Polish Covid-19 ForecastHub for transparent probabilistic real-time forecasts in the current pandemic. Many (inter)national research groups and the signaleteam of the RKI have already joint and actively supported the effort. See the pre-registered study for the systematic evaluation and statistical ensembles and the project website. Here is the preprint for the second wave.
