The COVID-19 pandemic has so far caused hundreds of millions of infections and millions of deaths. Even though infections are currently spiking in many nations and there is lingering concern that the virus’s variants may still cause infections to surge in heavily vaccinated communities, many can begin to see the end of the pandemic as the vaccination campaign accelerates worldwide.
Arguably the greatest global crisis in our lifetime, the pandemic has, over a short period of time, already changed the way we live, work, learn, and interact with others in significant ways; and some of the changes will likely remain with us to become part of the post-pandemic normality. Reflecting on the carnage and misery the pandemic has brought upon the world, as well as the challenges and opportunities for each of us to become more effective in our efforts to contribute to society, it is instructive for computer sciences researchers to contemplate ways that our discipline can better serve the common good in the years ahead.
