Digital technologies - actions in response to coronavirus pandemic: Data, artificial intelligence and supercomputers

Back to Digital technologies - actions in response to coronavirus

Data, artificial intelligence (AI) and supercomputers, with their analytical power, are major assets in detecting patterns in the spread of the virus or potential treatments. AI also plays a part in powering the robots that have come into their own in times when human interaction is kept to a minimum. Newer and emerging digital technologies such as quantum computing or blockchain can also potentially bring unexpected solutions and approaches. Data will be crucial for devising recovery strategies.
