Since WHO announced COVID-19 to be a pandemic, the dynamics of how we respond to it has changed tremendously. Similarly where a website where it provides verified news and data is no longer enough: covid19ai, the natural progression of CoronaTracker.
While CoronaTracker may have been a portal for verified news and statistics, it has also gathered immense amount of data that enabled researches to be conducted in various fields to better understand the impact of COVID-19, how to work on it, and recover from this aftermath when the time comes. These data will be part of the covid19ai open data lake project.
The current state of analysis work currently is highly fragmented. Data is everywhere and anywhere.
For swift actions to be taken in fighting COVID-19, we need to improve efficiency through an open data lake.
Empower researchers in relevant fields to uncover insights which may be limited by conventional methods.
The key is help researchers save time in figuring, looking, and getting data they need to efficiently progress their work.
Enable stakeholders to make well-informed decisions to best flatten the COVID-19 curve.
They need information to decided and act. Researches help to provide the information. COVID19AI is the material for researchers.
