Govit-19 Epidemiology High School students Pietro Andr குt Quinzani and Jono Pedro Chassi Sandre were intrigued to understand the behavior of skeptics about vaccines. From observation, the plan against suspicion: the cultural matrix clustering of Hofstead was born, which took both of them to Atlanta in the United States.
The anti-skeptical was highlighted at the USB (University of Sவோo Paulo) FEBRAS (Brazilian Science and Engineering Exhibition), with which the boys were able to present the project at the ISEF (International Science and Engineering Exhibition) last week.
With a different name, anti-skeptical emerged with the aim of understanding the cultural influence surrounding questions about the effectiveness of vaccines. “We tried to make a connection between these two components, and we had to learn by researching both statistics and machine learning,” Pietro explains.
Machine learning is a field of engineering and computer science that analyzes patterns, and computers have the ability to learn responses, cross-references, and the connection of data.
“Apart from learning how to work with tools, the opportunity to participate in FEBRAS was great because we learned a lot throughout the process, and in the United States, in addition to making a dream come true, we create. We argue for judges at every presentation.”
Pietro and João Pedro want to continue further research in the second year of high school at the Porto Seguro College. “I always wanted to study engineering in college, but now doing research on behavior, I have a variety of ideas, but would like to participate in exhibitions again next year.”
