Using AI and Big Data to fight pandemics - now and in the future

EIT_event_AI_BG

An EIT Digital Silicon Valley hub online panel debate.

AI and big data are aiding the fight against COVID-19 in multiple ways, such as identifying and tracking outbreaks, diagnosing the virus, developing vaccines, calculating disease models to shape national shutdowns and policies, surveillance and contact tracing, facial recognition and fever detection, and sterilization and delivery of food and supplies.

Our expert online debate will discuss pressing questions:

  • What relevant breakthrough efforts in the AI and big data space are already underway?
  • What worked and what didn’t work in the fight against Covid-19?
  • Where should the technology community accelerate their innovation activities and investments in?
  • Which new innovations could help prevent the next pandemic?
  • Should privacy protections be put aside in a time of crisis?
