Part 6: 'COMPLEX-IT: User-friendly computational modelling software for exploring COVID-19 data'

BLOG POST 5 of N

This post is the 6th of several devoted to addressing the complex challenges of modelling the coronavirus as a public health issue. It is also about clarifying for a wider audience how and why such modelling is important, as well as the value and power of complex systems thinking and computational modelling for public health policy.


COMPLEX-IT: Software for Modelling Complex Multiple COVID-19 Trends
Recently my colleagues Peter Barbrook-Johnson and Corey Schimpf did a webinar for the Centre for the Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN) on how to use our modelling software, COMPLEX-IT, for exploring complex multiple regonal trends of the cumulative incidence of COVID-19 cases across a given period of time.

We are sharing the webinar here for those interested in seeing how this software can be used to help with understanding the spread fo COVID-19 in a way that is in line with the previous five blog posts I've done on how best to approach modelling these types of public health problems.

COMPLEX-IT
For those interested in exploring COMPLEX-IT, our website has an beta online and downloadable version, as well as tutorials and readings. Note: this is educational software for learning purposes only. To explore COMPLEX-IT CLICK HERE!
