The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), from the University of Washington. The most precise and advanced analytical / forecasting tool about the Covid-19 pandemic available in the world.
Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, many statistic websites and health authorities have started to publish data about the evolution of the covid-19 pandemic online. You have probably seen the official one from your country, state, and maybe even city. However these reports will be often limited to local data, and might be biased by difference in speed of aggregation, and percentage of testing of the population.
There are also some global websites offering aggregate numbers such as the worldometers website.
However the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), with its advanced modeling capabilities, stands out and offers by far, the most detailed and precise effort of analysis of the current evolution and future forecast of the pandemic, in every region of the world, with the aid of big data analysis and artificial intelligence.
Maintained by the University of Washington, and funded by supporters such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google-Labs, Facebook Data for Good, UNESCO, World Health Organization, Microsoft AI for Health, and many other entities supporting the project, with either: technology, funds, or data.
The IHME is capable of correcting the infection numbers of a given region, where the percentage of tests is lower, by using trends and data from other areas, also to smoothen out data that is irregularly reported, and to forecast the future, basing its conclusions on data, science and technology (and not on opinions or theories from “specialist” A or B).
