As the shadow of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to loom large around the world, many governments, researchers and other organisations are feverishly trying to prevent the outbreak from worsening. Increasingly, they’re turning to emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and drones to bolster their efforts.

By referencing insights from various members of CompTIA’s advisory councils, Scott explores the effectiveness of emerging technologies like AI, blockchain and drones in fighting this epidemic.
