Project Open Air (Just One Giant Lab)

Project Open Air/Helpful Engineers, hosted within the broader open science group Just One Giant Lab has created a 5,000 strong volunteer organization, with engineers, scientists and doctors around the world who work to organize themselves into teams to design innovative ways to fight the virus. They are quickly trying to design and arrange the production of pragmatic devices to move life-saving air, extend existing tools, or organize volunteers on the ground to bolster medical workers. They have both hardware and software based projects including designing open source, scalable easy to DIY ventilators and O2 concentrators, sentiment analysis for persuasive public health media, diagnostic apps, and more!

Resources

Looking for

MANY different skills sets: app developers, ML researchers, data scientists, data visualization folks, makers, fabricators, designers, organizers, and especially folks who can volunteer time for project management.

Johns Hopkins Mapping nCOV Project

This team has developed an interactive web-based dashboard hosted by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University, to visualize and track reported cases in real-time. The dashboard illustrates the location and number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, deaths and recoveries for all affected countries. It was developed to provide researchers, public health authorities and the general public with a user-friendly tool to track the outbreak as it unfolds. Additionally, the data (which is verified and updated daily) is available on GitHub. They are interested in conducting additional modeling of the emerging outbreak.

Resources

Looking for

It doesn’t explicitly say on the website, but presumably ML researchers, model-builders, data visualization folks, data scientists.

How to get involved

  • Reach out to the group at COVID19map@jhu.edu or jhusystems@gmail.com
  • Grab the data and build your own project

U.S. Digital Response for COVID-19

The U.S. Digital Response Team was started by three former U.S. Deputy CTOs. This project seeks to connect veted technology, data, and healthcare experts to help meet the data and digital capacity needs of the US Government.

Resources

Looking for

Anyone with relevant experience in healthcare, data, engineering & product development, general management, operations, supply chain/procurement, and more.

Folding at Home

Folding at Home uses computer simulations to understand the proteins that viruses use to reproduce and suppress immune systems. This is done by taking the experimental structures as starting points, we can simulate how all the atoms in the protein move. Doing so can help health researchers find and understand new therapeutic opportunities. The calculations involved in these simulations are enormous, and so volunteers can use their existing compute resources to run folding simulations in the background and contribute to the larger F@H database.

Resources

Looking for

Anyone with a computer! Particularly in the areas of

  • Strategic Product Design
  • Gamification
  • Website Enhancement
  • Client Programming (C++, Web dev, JS, vue.js, JSON API)
  • Project Viewer
  • Stats
  • Protein Viewer
  • Github Issue Triage

COVID Compare

This project is just kicking off and is working on tracking/mapping the relative risk of Covid19 in the US. 50 cases in Kentucky is not the same as 50 cases in NYC. People aren’t good at normalizing out other variables like population/hospital access so I want to do that for them visually.

Resources

Looking for

Data scientists, model builders, public health folks to help build a quantifier for risk and a predictive tool, web app developers and data visualizers, data collectors.

How to get involved

Reach out to collaborators on GitHub

COVID-19 Community

COVID-19 Community is a community effort to build a Neo4j Knowledge Graph (KG) that links heterogenous data about COVID-19 to help fight this outbreak! It serves as a sandbox and incubator project and the best ideas will be incorporated into the Covid-19-Net KG.

Resources

Looking for

Data scientists and machine learning developers, particularly datavisualization pros!

How to get involved

  • Run the current project instance
  • Suggest additional data sets or propose queries
  • Add example Jupyter notebooks or data visualizations
