How Twitter Can Predict Flu Outbreaks Faster Than the CDC Infographic

How Twitter Can Predict Flu Outbreaks Faster Than the CDC Infographic | Life Technology Nature Science Human | Scoop.it

This year has been declared the worse flu season in over a decade by the CDC with 29 states including New York City reporting high levels of influenza-like-illness (ILI), and another nine states reporting moderate levels of ILI. The mayor of Boston has declared a public health emergency on Wednesday as the reported flu infections is already 10 times higher than last season and has killed more than a dozen people. Hospitals throughout the country have felt the strain in treating the flu outbreak turning away patients in some places with tents set up to handle less serious cases.

Traditional flu tracking performed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relies on outpatient reporting and virological test results supplied by laboratories nationwide that confirms an outbreak within 2 weeks after they begin; however, the CDC does not track all cases. So, what if social networks such as Twitter can track the outbreak of the flu 8 days in advance with 90 percent accuracy?

Researchers at the University Of Rochester in New York have used Twitter to track the outbreak of flu through New York utilizing a learning model to determine when healthy people would get sick with the flu. The study, performed by Adam Sadilek and his team, analyzed 4.4 million tweets that contained GPS location data from some 630,000 users in New York City over one month in 2010, using an algorithm that learned the difference between actual reports of illness and other, non-relative uses of words such as “sick”. The results were then plotted on a heatmap used to predict with people in a certain area were at risk of contagion up to eight days in advance.

Social media website, Sickweather declared that the flu season began October 18th, six weeks before the CDC’s official announcement. Sickweather utilized tracking and analysis via social media to predict the start of the flu season after seeing a 77 percent increase in social media reports mentioning flu between August and September. The CDC has even collaborated with Google using their Google Flu Trends tool as a potential source for early outbreak warnings. Other social media tools such as Flunearyou.org have 20,000 volunteers who are tracking their symptoms, narrowing the spread of flu down to your ZIP code.

MPHProgramsList, an advocate for public health student education has created the infographic visuliazation shown below that highlights the growing influence of social media’s ability to monitor and accurately track public health trends. Key highlights of the infographic include:

A study shows that using Twitter to predict flu outbreaks takes 6 weeks less than classical studies leaded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Once again, this example shows the growing importance of prediction technologies in the healthcare industry.

Are you using dynamic images to engage your audience? 

2DiFore Marketing Solutions's curator insight, May 6, 2015 8:38 AM

Admit it you've caught yourself giggling at this image we know!!! How many times have you heard that if you want to make an impact with your posts that you have to have compelling images. Note, you don't have to spend a boatload of money on the images to make an impact but you do have to have great quality photography. Need some help?

Deborah Spector's curator insight, May 6, 2015 9:33 AM

To create high impact content, create high impact visuals. Be sure your visual content touches people's emotions. This is especially true for the nonprofit marketer.

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post | Life Technology Nature Science Human | Scoop.it
Mobile devices like iPads and Androids have transformed the way we experience boredom. No longer is a wayward commuter forced to play Snake or Tetris, occupying themselves in a hardly satisfying, and utterly pixelated virtual reality. The tablet or smart phone-wielding travelers can now immerse themselves in an entire library of art and culture-related distractions, finding solace in everything from a Vincent van Gogh game to a digital version of the Louvre.

Just this week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a 140-year-old cultural stalwart of New York City, went the way of the future and introduced an iPhone app. Described as "exceedingly simple and modest" by Forbes, the move to make art more accessible is something we can't help but love. So, in the spirit of the Met's 21st century attitude, we've put together a list of mobile museums and art-honoring programs that will spark creativity in your everyday life.

Behold, 18 apps every creative and artist type should download now:
