Beat Future Infectious Diseases by Crowdsourcing Strategic Data

By Rich Murr, CIO, Epicor Software

To blunt the impact of COVID-19, a vast number of medical, industrial, and financial resources are being deployed. And while these efforts are important, we should also look ahead so that we are better able to prevent future pandemics by crowdsourcing strategic, available data that would offer a bigger picture.

As someone who previously served in the United States Marines and who now serves as a CIO for a software company, I can emphatically say that regardless of your line of work, one of the best first lines of defense is information – specifically, quality information that can be speedily obtained and assessed. In the case of fighting infectious diseases, this information is critical for our epidemiologists. They need information so that we can combat potential threats before they become widespread.

It’s clear that relying solely on closed societies, public health institutions, or the media to deliver quality information is insufficient. Fortunately, the imperfect information they do offer can be challenged, enriched, and ultimately made more accurate and actionable by the creative use of information technologies.

So, what would proactive, efficient, quality information look like in action when fighting infectious disease?

Picture passengers deplaning a flight. As they walk off the plane, inexpensive IoT (Internet of things) devices are utilized to unobtrusively take their temperatures as they stroll past a checkpoint. This temperature information is then delivered instantaneously to a cloud data warehouse and combined with the temperature data of millions of other passengers from thousands of airports. When a spike in temperatures correlates to a common origin, alerts would be generated, investigations launched, and if deemed necessary, preventative measures taken. All this would occur without infringing on civil liberties. Anonymized data is all that’s required (e.g. flight departure and destination times and locations,

Strategic Collaborations Towards Technology Development Transforming the Global Fuel Cell Vehicles Market, 2030

The “Strategic Collaborations Towards Technology Development Transforming The Global Fuel Cell Vehicles Market, 2020 – 2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This study gives us a detailed analysis of the current and future scenarios of FCEV sales, stations, hydrogen fuel, and the push from governments for their adoption in regions like North America, Europe, China, Japan, and South Korea. It can be used to gain insights into OEM strategies in establishing a profitable supply chain and to track the various automotive trends and their impact on the FCEV market.

Cost, infrastructure, and safety are the few most important barriers for the growth in FCEV sales. Companies across the value chain and governments are working closely towards reducing the cost of the vehicle, hydrogen production and retail pricing, increasing the number of refueling stations and improving safety, and we can expect FCEVs to have price parity with traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles by 2030.

The automotive industry is rapidly evolving in terms of technology as well as tackling environmental issues. Electric vehicles (EVs) have been introduced as a clean energy initiative as they have low or zero emissions, and have come a long way to become an integral part of OEMs’ business strategies. Automakers like PSA and VW are creating separate EV business units to be prepared for the expected EV boom in the future. Along with long-range battery electric vehicles (BEVs), governments and OEMs are also looking at fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) as a viable solution especially for light & heavy commercial vehicles (CVs) and sports utility vehicles (SUVs) in passenger cars.

Currently, there are only 3 models active in the market – Hyundai Nexo (most sold in 2019), Toyota Mirai, and Honda Clarity. Hyundai Tucson is awaiting an upgrade and we can expect a new
