SWI-Prolog class - Ideas for an advanced class

This topic was split off from SWI-Prolog Class so that the topic could remain focused on just that class.

DO NOT take this to mean Anne is planing an advanced class; AFAIK none is planned.

Just a suggestion feel free to disregard.

I have noticed an uptick in people new to programming trying their hand at analyzing the raw data counts for COVID-19 and creating graphs, predictions and maps.

The raw data counts can be found at 2019 Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (2019-nCoV) Data Repository by Johns Hopkins CSSE. :slightly_smiling_face:


While the COVID-19 counts are useful, when you add current population counts and other criteria for doing calculations you can learn more. e.g. United States County Population by Characteristics: 2010-2018

Also since the data from Johns Hopkins is combining data from many sources if you want more accurate and/or up to date information you have to find such sources. In New Jersey the most up to date and accurate information can be found at NJ COVID-19 Dashboard

What would be interesting to see the class do would be a federated search.


Might be something for the advanced class.
