Predicting COVID-19 Spread from Large-Scale Mobility Data
TLDR
This work is the first to predict the spread of COVID-19 from telecommunication data by introducing a novel model for epidemic forecasting based on mobility data, called mobility marked Hawkes model, and assessing the predictive power of conventional point of interest data.
Early Detection of COVID-19 Outbreaks Using Human Mobility Data
TLDR
Using anonymized, macro-level data human mobility data along with health data aids predictions of when and where COVID-19 outbreaks are likely to occur, providing a useful tool for government decision makers in the post-vaccination era.
Early detection of COVID-19 outbreaks using human mobility data
TLDR
Using anonymized, macro-level data human mobility data along with health data aids predictions of when and where COVID-19 outbreaks are likely to occur, providing a useful tool for government decision makers in the post-vaccination era.
Application of machine learning in the prediction of COVID-19 daily new cases: A scoping review
TLDR
This study reviews studies which used Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system, long short-term memory, recurrent neural network and multilayer perceptron strategies to predict the number of new cases of COVID-19 and compared the performance of several machine learning methods in prediction of CO VID-19 spread.
Multi-Regional Modeling of Cumulative COVID-19 Cases Integrated with Environmental Forest Knowledge Estimation: A Deep Learning Ensemble Approach
Reliable modeling of novel commutative cases of COVID-19 (CCC) is essential for determining hospitalization needs and providing the benchmark for health-related policies. The current study proposes
Rapid COVID-19 Modeling Support for Regional Health Systems in England
Problem definition: This paper describes the real-time participatory modeling work that our team of academics, public health officials, and clinical decision-makers has been undertaking to support
Real-time measurement of the uncertain epidemiological appearances of COVID-19 infections
TLDR
Based on the mortality rate and virus spread, this study concludes that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is more dangerous than other diseases.
COVID-19 Symptoms app analysis to foresee healthcare impacts: Evidence from Northern Ireland
TLDR
The proposed method proved to be effective for near real-time in-situ analysis of COVID-19 progression and to focus and complement public health decisions and is relevant to an understanding of SARS-COV-2 symptom entanglements in localized environments.
Investigation of robustness of hybrid artificial neural network with artificial bee colony and firefly algorithm in predicting COVID-19 new cases: case study of Iran
As an ongoing public health menace, the novel coronavirus pandemic has challenged the world. With several mutations and a high transmission rate, the virus is able to infect individuals in an
Investigation of robustness of hybrid artificial neural network with artificial bee colony and firefly algorithm in predicting COVID-19 new cases: case study of Iran
TLDR
The results revealed that both models can be used as a robust predictor of COVID-19 data and in a majority of cases ANN-FA outperforms the ANN-ABC.

Modelling and forecasting of COVID-19 spread using wavelet-coupled random vector functional link networks
TLDR
Experimental results indicate the potential of the WCRVFL model for COVID-19 spread forecasting, and the prediction performance of the proposed model is compared with the state-of-the-art support vector regression (SVR) model and the conventional RVFL model.
Statistical analysis of forecasting COVID-19 for upcoming month in Pakistan
TLDR
The fitted forecasting models revealed high exponential growth in the number of confirmed cases, deaths and recoveries in Pakistan and the health officials and government should adopt new strategies to control the pandemic from further spread until a proper treatment or vaccine is developed.
Forecasting for COVID-19 has failed
TLDR
Careful modeling of predictive distributions rather than focusing on point estimates, considering multiple dimensions of impact, and continuously reappraising models based on their validated performance may help to continuously calibrate predictive insights and decision-making.
Finding an Accurate Early Forecasting Model from Small Dataset: A Case of 2019-nCoV Novel Coronavirus Outbreak
TLDR
A methodology that embraces these three virtues of data mining from a small dataset is proposed, which aims at fine-tuning the parameters of an individual forecastingmodel for the highest possible accuracy.
Forecasting of COVID19 per regions using ARIMA models and polynomial functions
TLDR
An analysis of COVID-19 spread that shows a different angle for the whole world, through 6 geographic regions (continents), to create a relationship between the countries, which are in the same geographical area to predict the advance of the virus.
Application of the ARIMA model on the COVID-2019 epidemic dataset
TLDR
A simple econometric model that could be useful to predict the spread of COVID-2019 is proposed that was performed on the Johns Hopkins epidemiological data and performed Auto Regressive Integrated Moving Average model prediction.
A machine learning methodology for real-time forecasting of the 2019-2020 COVID-19 outbreak using Internet searches, news alerts, and estimates from mechanistic models
TLDR
The machine-learning methodology uses a clustering technique that enables the exploitation of geo-spatial synchronicities of COVID-19 activity across Chinese provinces, and a data augmentation technique to deal with the small number of historical disease activity observations, characteristic of emerging outbreaks.
Exponentially Increasing Trend of Infected Patients with COVID-19 in Iran: A Comparison of Neural Network and ARIMA Forecasting Models
TLDR
COVID-19 is contagious disease, and has infected many people in Iran, and is an alarm for health policy planners and decision-makers, to make timely decisions, control the disease and provide the equipment needed.
Time series forecasting of COVID-19 transmission in Canada using LSTM networks☆
TLDR
The Long short-term memory (LSTM) networks, a deep learning approach to forecast the future COVID-19 cases are presented, which predicted the possible ending point of this outbreak will be around June 2020 and compared transmission rates of Canada with Italy and USA.
FORECASTING COVID-19 PANDEMIC: A DATA-DRIVEN ANALYSIS
TLDR
A tentative prediction of the epidemic peak for Russia, Brazil, India and Bangladesh which could become the next COVID-19 hotspots in no time is given and it is suggested that relaxing social distancing restrictions too quickly could exacerbate the epidemic outbreak in the above mentioned countries.
