There are more than thirty scientists in their Research Unit. Working in various fields of computer science that include social media analysis, machine learning and natural language processing. They recently have integrated all the skills of the Unit in a Research Project entitled SPEED-TUN. The project includes a classical machine learning algorithm for the prediction of individual COVID-19 cases. A knowledge-based system for the Topic Modelling of common trends in the social networks about COVID-19 in the Tunisian context has also been developed. They have come up with a PubMed Central-based system for the generation of publications corresponding to a trend. These applications can be found at []
