Graph analytics and knowledge graphs facilitate scientific research for COVID-19
State of the art in analytics and AI can help address some of the most pressing issues in scientific research. Here is how top scientists are using them to facilitate coronavirus research.
Like all epidemics, the COVID-19 pandemic escalates in a crisis of individual and collective character. While in some ways crises bring people together, they also expose and stress systemic flaws and vulnerabilities. Case in point: Scientific research.
Science is one of the pillars upon which modern society is built. The scientific method is what underlies many achievements, including technology and data-driven decision making. This, however, does not mean science is without its own issues.
Producing results to fight against the SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) is one of the most pressing issues today, bringing the entire scientific community together. Addressing issues related to scientific research can help produce results under pressure.
ZDNet connected with two prominent researchers to discuss how they are using the state of the art in analytics and AI, graphs analytics and knowledge graphs, to facilitate scientific research for the COVID-19 pandemic.
