Join the Fight Against COVID-19 with DataRobot

DataRobot Alumni

First and foremost - thank you for joining the fight to help bend the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19. It is critical that we band together to use all of the people, data, and technologies at our disposal to contribute to solving this challenge. It will take a village community.

Challenges, Competitions, and Research

Our friends at Kaggle and The Office of Science and Technology Policy have combined forces with other collaborators on an Open Research Dataset Challenge (CORD-19). There are a number of other freely-available data sets and initiatives around the web that we would encourage you to participate in. Just bring the data.

How We're Helping

To help accelerate the availability of modeling and prediction capabilities to those participating in research, we are offering a self-service version of our DataRobot Platform, for free, to anyone who wants to leverage data prep, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.

To get started, submit your information here:

We will review and approve your access as quickly as we can. Keep an eye on your inbox after submitting your info. If your use case is accepted, you have 21 days to utilize our platform with no cost to you. Please contact us with any questions on extending your research project.

The following are example use cases that could be relevant for this research program. We know there are many other use cases to consider - let this list be a guide for what is possible:
  1. Predict where the virus will spread next.

  2. Predict the number of people with symptoms that haven't been tested.
  3. Predict the length of the patient's incubation period based on their presenting symptoms. 

  4. Predict which areas will need which supplies.

Please don't upload any Personally Identifiable Information or HIPAA data. Please anonymize data before leveraging our platform.

Connect. Engage. Flatten the Curve.

The goal of this area of the DataRobot Community is to centralize information relating to COVID-19 research and ongoings. Please do post your thoughts, questions, and findings here. We will also keep you updated on additional events, knowledge, and resources that may be pertinent to your research efforts. Also feel free to leverage the broader community to help you along the way. Here are some great resources to help you get started.

Please Excuse Our Dust

The self-service version of the DataRobot Platform that we are offering for this research is brand-new. I mean, like, we haven't even removed the protective wrapping after opening the box. Although it isn't fully polished, we wanted to get it out into the world as quickly as possible to help in any way that we can with the COVID-19 pandemic. If you do encounter any surprises with the experience or have feedback about the product, please email We'd love to hear what you have to say!

If there's anything else we can do to make your work in this area better, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Let's go get it,
