Revealed: How Data Scientists are Containing the Spread of COVID-19. The Do’s and Don’ts

What do scientists know about COVID-19 so far?

“I worked in post-conflict development for the UN in West Africa before coming to Silicon Valley to complete a Ph.D. focused on adapting Machine Learning to low resource languages in health and disaster response contexts. I’ve helped respond to many disasters worldwide, including the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the MERS-coronavirus outbreak 10 years ago” — Robert Munro, founder & CEO of Machine Learning Consulting and an expert at finding solutions for tracking global outbreaks.

The Five Do’s

👉Help interpret information to the people around

👉Try to translate the information into more than one language

👉Prepare data that is directly related to the response

👉Analyze data that is not related to the response

👉Do your research with the help of disaster response datasets

The Four Don’ts

👉Avoid working with organizations that do not respond

👉Do not start a task you cannot support

👉Avoid amplifying fake media

👉Make sure not to release personal information of people working for the cause
