Abstract

This article aims to review the role and utility of big data and artificial intelligence in tracking and managing the public health crisis associated with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The article reviews previous use cases where big data and AI have played a role and added value to monitoring and managing public health crises, outbreaks, and pandemics. The article discusses the benefits as well as the limitations and risks inherent in using big data and AI in managing public health crisis efforts. The article does not provide a critical review of the methodologies associated with the use of big data and AI for public health crisis management.
