Time & Location
About the event
Artificial intelligence can bolster efforts to combat COVID-19 by accelerating research on treatments, diagnostics and drawing lessons from previous pandemics.
This OECD webinar will explore how governments in Latin America and the Caribbean can leverage AI technology to guide policy makers, the medical community, and society at large through every stage of the COVID-19 crisis, including its aftermath.
During the webinar, the OECD will give an update on the latest developments and considerations in OECD countries and beyond, and share how artificial intelligence has helped to combat COVID-19. The presentation and ensuing discussion will help policy makers in the LAC region to design AI policies and strategies to combat COVID-19.
