This OR / MS perspective combines a comprehensive problem-solving approach with rigorous quantitative analysis.
A sustainable approach to contact tracing is becoming a central factor in economic recovery. COVID-19 is a “graph-shaped” problem; we responded with a “graph-shaped” solution. We conducted a graph analysis of asymptomatic transmission in South Korea — with potential implications for social intervention / “exposure notification” worldwide.
I am so grateful to my colleagues Akash Kaul and Jon Herke for this collaboration; also TigerGraph (COVID-19 starter kit) and Futurist Academy for their visionary support of this important investigation.
