In this course, you’ll take on the role of a data scientist at the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO is responsible for responding to international epidemics, a critical component of which involves monitoring global news headlines for signs of disease outbreaks. However, this daily deluge of news data is too huge to manually analyze. Your challenge is to pull geographic information from headlines, and determine where in the world outbreaks are occurring. Problems you will have to solve include extracting information from text using regular expressions, using the Basemap Matplotlib extension to visualize map locations for patterns indicating an epidemic, and reporting your findings to your superiors so resources can be dispatched.
