Can we move faster than a virus?
In the past 24 hours, 277 people died from COVID-19
Imagine yourself in a historic moment. Would you have recognized it? Would you have taken the opportunity to change the world?
Now, take a look around. Hundreds are dying daily. Economies are being shaken. It doesn’t take much awareness to realize that COVID-19 is OUR historic moment. When you look back on this moment, what will you say that you did?
Are you an AI expert? How can you use your skills against COVID-19?
Hardware expert? Can you drop the cost of expensive diagnostic equipment? Make designs open source and shareable around the world?
Healthcare professional? What do your patients need? What new problems or innovations are you seeing that others should know about?
Designers, how can you help millions of people digest overwhelming data and drive calls to action?
Good at spotting problems? We need you to identify solution areas that people aren’t yet working on.
If there’s something you could beta test as part of a COVID-19 response, now is the time. Viruses move quickly… let’s see if we can go faster.
