White House Calls for AI Experts to Help COVID-19 Research

On March 16, 2020, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) announced the availability of an open research dataset on COVID-19, as well as stated a call to action for the nation’s artificial intelligence (AI) researchers to help scientists fight the disease. Established in 1976, the OSTP provides scientific and technological advice to the President and the Executive Office, among other duties.

The CORD-19 (COVID-19 Open Research Dataset) is the result of a collaboration between the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2), Microsoft, the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology (CSET), and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in response to a request by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Together these institutions issued a joint call to action to the world’s AI researchers to create text and data mining tools to help accelerate COVID-19 research.
