Episode Show Notes:
The city of New York is the epicenter of the COVID-19 in the United States and this pandemic has exposed weak links in the management system of the city. Medical facilities in New York and the four boroughs are under strain as more patients come in. Community coordination is a problem at this time with no organized channels for extending support. Despite these challenges, the mobilization is high from the federal government and the private sector to fight the outbreak.
Technology is bridging this gap with the Mayor’s office adopting a multi-communication model to interact with communities around New York during the outbreak. Artificial intelligence, data analytics is critical for a modern city like New York, and this crisis is a wake-up call for adoption of smart systems. From telemedicine, telecommunication and teaching seniors how to use technology, the leadership of New York should consider these factors to strengthen their capabilities.
Digital transformation is happening in education as the COVID-19 outbreak continues with students using technology tools such as Zoom to facilitate learning. The Link NYC Initiative is enabling digital transformation in the city by allowing free internet access to the public.
