Disaster Mobility Data Network Launch Meeting


  • DATE:
    Thu, Jul 22, 2021 at 09:00am — 10:00am

Changes in mobile phone technology, notably the near-ubiquity in many places of GPS-enabled smartphones, have altered the ways that response agencies and researchers understand and respond to crises. As this data becomes mainstream in emergency management, key issues of data capacity and data literacy - as well as ethics, privacy, and data protection - become increasingly pressing.

OpenDP: open-source software tools for privacy-protective statistical analysis of sensitive personal data.


by Abhishek Bhatia


The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of developing analytical pipelines that leverage data streams generated by individuals and communities to drive data-driven responses to crises. As these data increasingly exchange hands within agencies and are shared publicly for broader research, Salil Vadhan from Harvard SEAS and Navin Vembar from Camber Systems discuss the inadequacy of traditional methods for the protection of sensitive personal data.

National Shelter System Data: Opportunities, Challenges, and Applications to COVID-19


by Abhishek Bhatia


In the United States, the vast majority of shelters are operated by agencies like the American Red Cross, other not-for-profit organizations, or directly by the county government. During disasters, the sudden demand for services at these shelters contributes to challenges in resource allocation and complicates the logistics of keeping people safe during mass gatherings.

Mobility Data and the Limits of Data Protection Frameworks


October 7, 2020 by Abhishek Bhatia


The near real-time information about human movement provided by aggregated population mobility data has tremendous potential to help refine interventions when appropriate legal, organizational, and computational safeguards are in place. As the private sector, policymakers, and academia work together to leverage novel sources of data to track the spread of the pandemic, Randall Harp, Laurent Hébert-Dufresne, and Juniper Lovato from the University of Vermont argue that anonymization at the individual level is insufficient– the notion of privacy should extend to communities as well.

Digital Mobility Data, Physical Distancing, and COVID-19 in Syracuse


by Jennifer Chan


Syracuse is a modest sized city of just over 140,000 people in upstate New York. It sits within the heart of the Finger Lakes region, not far from Lake Ontario. Although far from the worst hit areas of New York state by COVID-19, Syracuse saw alarming increases in cases and deaths during the initial wave of the pandemic.
