A hallmark of science is the open exchange of knowledge. At this time of crisis, it is more important than ever for scientists around the world to openly share their knowledge, expertise, tools, and technology. Scientific models are critical tools for anticipating, predicting, and responding to complex biological, social, and environmental crises, including pandemics.

The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) PLATES program is dedicated to the research of plate tectonics and geologic reconstructions. The project is supported by a consortium of industry associates. The primary objectives are: To model past and present plate movement. Construct accurate.
The University of Texas at Austin's Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) is home to the most powerful collection of supercomputers at any university in the world. The center is one of the leading providers in the White House-led COVID-19 High Performance Computing (HPC) Consortium, supporting projects and researchers worldwide.
AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- A new study by epidemiological researchers at the University of Texas is taking a look at how social distancing efforts impacted the spread of COVID-19.The paper, which is now in press with the CDC journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, took a look at 58 cities throughout China and analyzed when cases were first detected, when social distancing and other measures were.
May 28, 2020 — The UK has added more than 20 Petaflops of high-performance computing capability to the global effort to address the coronavirus crisis by joining the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium. For perspective, a supercomputer with just eight petaflops can do a million calculations per person in the world per second. Together, the Consortium offers 50 times that.
Wichman said the IMCI team has benefited from partnering with a modeling group at the University of Texas at Austin, among five places that are performing modeling for the CDC. That team is being updated each morning on the state of the pandemic in the United States and planning how the University of Texas COVID-19 Consortium can address new modeling challenges.
We’ve seen proof that social distancing is effective in reports from UT Austin’s COVID-19 Modeling Consortium, where researchers continue to project a steady decline in COVID-19 related deaths. But what about those who may have been or currently are in contact with someone who has a confirmed diagnosis of the virus? This is where contact tracing comes in. The success of relaxing stay-at.
Among these partnerships is the University of Texas at Austin COVID-19 Modeling Consortium, led by Dr. Lauren Ancel Meyers, which developed one of the leading epidemiological models of how the disease spreads based on virus transmission and real-time cell phone data. The White House and CDC, as well as the national media and public, have used the model to inform their understanding and.
The UT Online Consortium (UTOC) serves as a platform for students to pursue online degrees and courses from the participating University of Texas System institutions. It streamlines registration and exchange of student information between students and campus advisors, registrars, and financial aid officers. The majority of the programs listed on the.
Lauren Ancel Meyers, who leads UT Austin’s COVID-19 Modeling Consortium, said she expects community transmission to continue for the next year. The rate of the spread could be high enough that.
The UT COVID-19 Modeling Consortium unites scientists, social scientists, and engineers in developing innovative models that advance the surveillance, forecasting and mitigation of this unprecedented and elusive threat. Led by Professor Lauren Ancel Meyers, the consortium is actively supporting community workers and health professionals on the front line of the fight against COVID-19 and.
AUSTIN, Texas -- A new analysis of COVID-19 outbreaks in 58 cities has found that places that took longer to begin implementing social distancing measures spent more time with the virus rapidly.
Epidemiological researchers at the University of Texas at Austin studied cities throughout China and analyzed when first cases were detected, when social distancing measures were implemented, and when the outbreak was considered contained. Dig Deeper. Big Data Model to Help Optimize Hospital Resources During COVID-19; Real-Time Data Ring May Predict COVID-19 in Healthcare Workers; 3 States to.
In a new paper from epidemiological researchers at The University of Texas at Austin, now in press with the CDC’s journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, researchers studied cities throughout China and analyzed when first cases were detected, when social distancing measures were implemented and when the outbreak was considered contained. The team found that every day a city delayed in.
UT Austin's COVID-19 Modeling Consortium defines a peak as the day their predictions of the average daily death rate stop increasing and start decreasing. Researchers say there is a 95% chance that will happen in the next two weeks for the Austin-Round Rock-Georgetown area. The modeling data also shows an 86% chance the peak will happen in just one week and a 71% chance it has already passed.In a new paper from epidemiological researchers at The University of Texas at Austin,. associate director of the UT Austin COVID-19 Modeling Consortium and co-author on the paper. “Our findings have implications for the timing of interventions in U.S. cities,” Meyers said. “The impact of delays may be particularly important for communities that are prone to rapid transmission, such as.This conclusion has been drawn through an analysis conducted in 58 cities, where the COVID-19 virus has been prevalent. Researchers from The University of Texas at Austin considered data from cities throughout China. It has been noted that a prompt initiative and firm decision taken to put in place restrictions among people to gather could help.
