Short Description

Amid COVID-19, there is a pressing need to study the emergency preparedness and resilience in civil society. The ongoing pandemic is generating new buying and stocking patterns in civil society. Project ‘Kontikat’ did an extensive survey on emergency preparedness and stocking in 2018-2019, and the results show the need of a recommender system to standardize the stocking patterns in order to assist people in the wake of an emergency. This project demands corpus(data set) creation based on the already collected data in our survey, machine learning model(classifier) creation for recommender system based on data features, cross validation of data to train and test the model and benchmarking with f-score(precision, recall).
