Using Big Data against Corona

Professor Matthias Mnich is an algorithm researcher at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) and based in the HAMBURG INNOVATION PORT with his Institute for Algorithms and Complexity. He and his team work on the analysis of large amounts of data for problems in engineering and economics. Applications lie, for example, in production planning, project management and chip design.

Recently, the researchers addressed the question of how to better contain the spread of the Corona pandemic. They developed a new method to identify so-called „superspreaders“ by analyzing mobility data and thus interrupt infection chains.
