Objectives with big data

  • Provide accurate and information-rich data to actors in society who need to make difficult decisions about how to manage the Covid-19 pandemic. Two types of decision-makers are enabled by empowered data: 
  • Organizations with authority to influence the success of broad social dynamics such as policymaking, targeted incident responses, or general preventative measures 
  • Individuals and communities with an interest to maximize individual and social value 
  • Provide predictive insights into spread and impact dynamics of the crisis and enable society’s ability to be proactive in measures that reduce the curve of growth and social and economic impact of the spread.  
  • Provide confidence in the population about the handling of the crisis 
  • Allow for better planning social and economic planning
