Friends, for those with a bent toward finding out what’s going on in research at the intersection of computer science and biomedicine related to the coronavirus, there will be a Stanford-sponsored virtual conference on this topic on Wed, April 1 (no April fools gotcha) that is open to the public (see this link). The conference will run from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

The broad topic is to explore the impact of COVID-19 on society and the way artificial intelligence (AI) can be leveraged to increase understanding of the virus and its spread. The conference will convene interdisciplinary experts from Stanford and beyond and will be live-streamed to engage the broad research community, government and international organizations, and civil society.

Topics that will be addressed include: AI applications in diagnostics and treatment, epidemiological tracking and forecasting of the spread of the virus, information and disinformation, and the broader human impact of COVID-19 and pandemics in general on economies, culture, government, and human behavior.
