Predicting the spread of COVID-19 is not easy. The best methods we have available require us to extrapolate trends from a large volume of data, and this requires the construction of large-scale models. Because of the expertise needed for developing these models, Silicon Valley engineers were brought in to help develop a maintainable model. Two of these engineers are Josh Wills and Sam Shah, and they join the show to talk about the engineering behind the COVID model, and their work to build it.
