The #Data4COVID19 Review Webinar
2 December, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
As the last two years of the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrate, pandemics pose major challenges on all levels–with cataclysmic effects on society. Decision-makers from around the world have sought to mitigate the consequences of COVID-19 through the use of data, including data from non-traditional sources such as social media, wastewater, and credit card and telecommunications companies. However, there has been little research into how non-traditional data initiatives were designed or what impacts they had on COVID-19 responses.Over the last eight months, The GovLab, with the support of The Knight Foundation, has sought to fill this gap by conducting an in-depth study about how non-traditional data sources have been used during COVID-19.
This webinar will include a presentation by The GovLab’s Stefaan Verhulst about how non-traditional health, mobility, economic, and sentiment data were used during COVID-19 and lessons learned from around the world.
