Abstract: This talk will introduce the progresses that we have achieved recently in the investigation of the spreading dynamics of Covid-19. Using a machine learning framework, including time-series analytic methods, conventional epidemic models, and agent-based models, we have, respectively, studied the impacts of several factors and interventions on Covid-19 transmission dynamics. All of our studies have shown the the great significance of the integration of the data-driven research with the model-driven study to address the prediction, evaluation, and simulation problems of epidemiology.
