We are fortunate to have AI technology available to us during this global pandemic. As you can read in this brief article, public- and private-sector teams in numerous countries are using AI in a variety of ways to help us reduce the impact, speed us toward a vaccine, and communicate with citizens. 

I also expect we will be using AI and machine learning to help us speed the economic recovery from this traumatic event. I haven't seen much on that topic, but I'm looking out for it and will share when I find examples starting to happen on that topic, too.

Given all the ways this versatile technology is already helping us with mitigation and recovery, can you imagine how long it might go on, and how much damage might be done, if we didn't have this sort of support? I'm interested in your thoughts.
