Never before have we had access to large scale datasets and processing capabilities while fighting a global pandemic like COVID-19. But with great data comes great responsibility. New questions are being asked, such as:
How should such data be used?
Are there protections that individuals are willing to forgo in a short-term crisis? What happens after the crisis is over?
Is it possible to enhance contact tracing while also increasing privacy protections?
What other technologies can be used to fight a global pandemic, and what are the privacy implications of their use?
In this track at the Responsible Data Summit we will explore the perspectives and experiences of leaders fighting COVID-19 with data and new technologies, and host a discussion about how we all - as responsible data stewards - can use data responsibly to fight both the current pandemic and infectious diseases in the future.
Have you been working on collecting data and applying data science to the fight against COVID-19, facing challenges in responsible data use, or developing technologies for responsible data use for COVID-19? Then we want to hear from you! We are looking for short presentation spotlights of approximately 5 minutes to highlight relevant work in responsible data use for COVID-19. The best Spotlight talks will be given the ResponsibleData Spotlight Award.
Please send us an abstract of no more than 300 words and a 5 minute video by July 20.
