Fighting COVID-19 with APIs and Big Data hosted by Bit Project:
Bit Project would like to invite students from University of Southern California to participate in our webinar about applying the power of APIs and Big Data to combat COVID-19. Utilizing data provided by Johns Hopkins University, we will be guiding students through Postman to exhibit how code can influence issues faced at a global scale. In addition, we have speakers from reputable organizations, such as Microsoft and Postman, that will explain the role of distinct computing features in the age of COVID-19.
By the end of the webinar, attendees will have experience with:
- Finding and accessing public APIs
- Importing, cleaning, and processing geospatial data
- Using Jupyter Notebook
- Using Facebook’s Prophet Library to forecast the spread of the disease.
While this webinar is centered around APIs and Big Data, we will also have speaker(s) from the front-lines of COVID-19 to conceptually understand the potential magnitude technologists may have on this pandemic.
We will be hosting the webinar on Thursday, May 21st at 6:00 p.m.
