Subject Re: can we all help use our expertise to create an IT solution for Covid-19
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2020 20:58:57 GMT
Hi all,

Many thanks for your contribution.

A number of colleagues have proposed existing sites devoted to analyzing
this virus mainly in US and North America. Also donating computers etc.
although worthy gestures will not be enough.

What I had in mind (and apologies if this looks pedantic) is to have a
global digital infrastructure that is available across multiple regions on
Cloud. This will ensure that findings and advances are shared, as opposed
to the current fragmented and silo like research that is taking place
across the world.

These communities that we have are amazing in that members share ideas and
findings and have created world class solutions often started from
Universities and research labs and ended up in open forums. The amount of
discipline and collaboration is phenomenal and we should take advantages of
these talents to use them for a worthy cause.

I agree with some that whatever sentiments we have, we need to be put
aside. We don't have the luxury of that. I genuinely believe that we can
create a working model in Cloud pretty fast and expand it  across the globe
as much as we can.

Granted the richer countries have deeper pockets and those are the ones
that can provide the artefacts for free. On that we have not got a choice
and we should not make the solution created geared for one market only. We
have to accept that there will be sceptics all around but that is life and
we will need to accept that.

My point is that if they can build field hospitals in two-three weeks,
there is nothing to stop us building something pretty quick, modular,
pluggable and self contained.

HTH,

Dr Mich Talebzadeh
