How can cities reopen safely during COVID? The City of Los Angeles, in partnership with the Global Association for Research Methods and Data Science, organized a data science challenge to determine the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in locations across the City. The two-week challenge provided ideas and concepts that helped the City better understand factors that may increase or decrease COVID-19 exposure risks, how to calculate these risks, and do so in a way that was respectful of data privacy.
