About Quantum Risk Analytics, Inc.

Our mission: To help mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic and future epidemics by deploying a robust risk assessment tool that predicts real-world infection risk and mortality, thus empowering individuals, groups, and organizations to make better risk-informed decisions about their activities.


Pandemonium is a COVID-19 Risk Assessment & Projection Model being developed by Quantum Risk Analytics, Inc. as its first product.

The basic framework of the model will allow for an arbitrary degree of demographic and spatial refinement where data is available as well as allow various submodels to be incorporated into the overall model making this a very extensive and extensible framework that can be used by researchers and others. (For more about our model design, please refer to the draft proposal on our website.)


Some key technical attributes of our model framework so far:


We continue to develop this model to include additional features, information & detail. We plan to make our model framework open-source around the same time that we launch our risk assessment app for general use.
