Short brief on feedback and epidemiology for COVID-19

Category: Forums and Discussions

Abstract/Vision:

To facilitate our discussions with epidemiologists, economists, and policy makers we wrote a short brief on the potential role of feedback and control in the design of policies such as social distancing. Will share it here.

Specifically considering the goals of increasing population recovery rate, respecting healthcare capacity, while being robust to the uncertainty in epidemiological model parameters.

We hope for and encourage collaboration between the epidemiology and control communities in approaching this very critical and urgent global challenge.
