Join us as part of the Skoll World Forum’s virtual discussions this week on Collective Strength. Some of the world’s top data experts will discuss their latest data solutions in the fight against COVID-19 and how data can help with both short- and long-term recovery efforts around the world. This virtual session is co-hosted by the Atlantic Council’s GeoTech Center and Public Democracy and is free and open to the public online.
Addressing the current global pandemic by intentionally working on efforts to advance “Data For Good” will yield short-term innovations, stymie the disease, and save lives. As we will discuss in this session, we already have achieved critical breakthroughs in models to track the disease and supplement incomplete medical data. Such approaches also can create better open data platforms, harness unrealized human and social capital, and develop more resilient economic models to speed recovery and improve the world over the longer term.
Featuring leading data experts from the Atlantic Council GeoTech Center, Public Democracy, Dun & Bradstreet, The Ad Council, LiveRamp, Splunk, Datavant, and Singularity University some of whom are working with the World Health Organization.
We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be a lively, truly global discussion on Wednesday, April 01 from 12:15-1:15pm EDT (GMT -4 hours). For those with the Skoll World Forum joining virtually from the United Kingdom, that’s 4:15-5:15pm GMT and for those joining virtually from California, that’s 9:15-10:15am PDT (GMT -7 hours) on April 01, 2020.
