Research: The Heart of Innovation


The word MIMANSA has deep meaning.  It is a combination of detailed analysis followed by reflection related to validity of the conclusions drawn. The methodical following of 'mimansa' is epistemology. 

In the present contest, we have built a simulator to simulate SARS-CoV-2 virus spread after a detailed analysis of how the spread takes place.


The model, MIMANSA, divides an individual's in-person social interactions into three areas, namely home, workplace, and public places. The model tracks the in-person interactions and follows the virus spread. When a new silent carrier is created, the model automatically expands and builds a new layer in the network.

MIMANSA has four control mechanisms, namely the exposure, infection rate, lockdown, and quarantining.

MIMANSA is trained and validated using the data from the USA and India. Our results show that MIMANSA forecasts the number of COVID-19 cases in the USA, and India within a 2% margin of error.
