French CoData Do Tank: pooling skills to respond to the Covid-19 crisis

The response to the government's problems in times of crisis is complex, sometimes too theoretical, and probably not sufficiently agile to provide concrete solutions in such an emergency as the Covid-19 crisis.

CoData is a Do Tank, of which Ekimetrics is a member, was recently created to provide tangible data responses to the current major national projects: deconfinement measures, health, economic impact, etc.

CoData gathers more than 800 data science experts (data engineers, data scientists, developers, data visualization experts, AI experts, etc.) who:

  • pool their skills as French data experts, in order to create a unique & agile strike force
  • have chosen to solve iconic use cases, directly related to deconfinement measures
  • volunteer their support to major national issues, fighting every day against the virus and the impacts of the Covid-19 crisis
