#12: Can algorithms predict the next major pandemic?

In Episode 12, Quinn and Brian ask: Can algorithms predict the next major pandemic? Pretty please? Joining us: Dr. Sam Scarpino, Assistant Professor of Marine & Environmental Sciences and Physics and a core faculty member in the Network Science Institute at Northeastern University. We discuss whether, and if so, how advanced algorithms and data science can help predict and prevent the next major pandemic.  Also, the importance of a liberal arts education, bad wifi in 2018, and my wife’s iPhone.  Want to send us feedback?
