Devvret Rishi presents the different efforts that the data science platform Kaggle is pursuing to tackle COVID-19. Their two main data science challenges regarding COVID-19 are to forecast the spread of the virus given time series case number data and other meta-data on a global scale and to use natural language processing to automatically analyze and harmonize the corpus of research literature on COVID-19 to answer important questions. They offer free online computing resources (including GPUs and TPUs) to data scientists working on these challenges.
