Gauging the effectiveness of big data in coronavirus fight

Federal Drive

Tom Siebel joined the Federal Drive podcast with Tom Temin to report on the progress of the C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute (C3.ai DTI) and the C3.ai COVID-19 Data Lake.

Noting that policymakers have been forced to make what amounts to minimally-educated guesses about what actions to take, Tom Siebel said researchers are working hard to transform scientific findings into solid recommendations.

“Soon we should have hard data to inform policymakers and inform us as citizens,” he said. With DTI’s researchers using the COVID-19 Data Lake, “we can make a positive contribution to this dialogue and advance the science and increase our knowledge so that these policymakers aren’t just guessing.”
