Abstract

Call detail records assist in capturing human behavior, trends, and needs that are not efficient or otherwise possible to collect. They are especially useful for studying developing countries due to widespread adoption of mobile devices and the general lack of governmental resources. These datasets allow researchers to build models of the underlying population. Simulation software can then be utilized to produce predictions of epidemics and optimize mitigation strategies. The resulting experiments assist in planning healthcare infrastructure and public health response.
