It is mainly thanks to big data that we have been able to develop a vaccine against covid-19 in such a few months.
This is the statement of Giovanni Vizzini, chief operating officer and medical-scientific director of the Italian division of Upmc (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center).
Without technology, it would never have been possible to develop a vaccine so quickly. The technology will also be fundamental in the continuation of the study of the vaccine, continuing to expand the number of people who receive it.
The pandemic is also producing a huge amount of data, we have a lot of information available that will allow us to have solutions and indications very quickly, with truly incredible accuracy.
The technologies will also help in the administration phase of the vaccine. so wehave to use big data to continue monitoring the vaccine that has only been tested on a microscopic fragment of the population compared to the amount of people who will receive it.
