The project will integrate mobile location data, made available by a Portuguese cellphone operator (NOS) to improve existing models for the geographical spread of COVID-19. The integration of this information will use mobility indexes and machine learning methods that model the strength of interconnections between municipalities. The resulting, improved model, will be made available to the public and the relevant authorities, enabling a smarter and more detailed monitoring of the pandemic.
