Europeans in Boston During Covid Zoom Meeting
October 29, 2020
Thursday, October 29, 2:30pmEST/9:30Athens
The German EU rotating presidency in Boston kindly organizes a science diplomacy event on Covid 19. The webinar will feature distinguished European scientists and researchers who are working in Boston and who will share their personal experiences in the scientific fight against Covid.
One of the 4 European scientists is Dr. George Barbastathis, Professor for Mechanical Engineering at the MIT, who has a major role in the designing of a model that quantifies the impact of quarantine measures on Covid-19’s spread.
The machine learning algorithm combines data on the disease’s spread with a neural network, to help predict when infections will slow down in each country. We would like to personally thank Professor Barbastathis for accepting our invitation to take part in the European seminar. Thanks to Dr. Barbastathis, Greece is present in one more important European scientific initiative in Boston.
