INDUSTRY.co.id - Today, Intel is pledging an additional $50 million in a pandemic response technology 

initiative to combat the coronavirus through accelerating access to technology at the point of patient care, speeding scientific research and ensuring access to online learning for students. 

Included in Intel’s effort is an additional innovation fund for requests where access to Intel expertise and resources can have immediate impact. 

This is in addition to prior announcements of $10 million in donations that are supporting local communities during this critical time. 

“The world faces an enormous challenge in fighting COVID-19. Intel is committed to accelerating access to technology that can combat the current pandemic and enable new technology and scientific discovery that better prepares society for future crises. We hope that by sharing our expertise, resources and technology, we can help to accelerate work that saves lives and expands access to critical services around the world during this challenging time.” Bob Swan, Intel chief executive officer 

What It Funds: Approximately $40 million will fund the Intel COVID-19 Response and Readiness and Online Learning initiatives. 

The Intel COVID-19 Response and Readiness Initiative will provide funding to accelerate customer and partner advances in diagnosis, treatment and vaccine development, leveraging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), high-performance computing and edge-to-cloud service delivery. 

Through the initiative, Intel will help healthcare and life sciences manufacturers increase the 
availability of technology and solutions used by hospitals to diagnose and treat COVID-19. 

It will also support the creation of industry alliances that accelerate worldwide capacity, capability and policy to respond to this and future pandemics, building on Intel’s own experience in driving technology innovation 
in the health and life sciences arena. 

The Intel Online Learning Initiative will support education-focused nonprofit organizations and business partners to provide students, without access to technology, with devices and online learning resources. 

In close partnership with public school districts, the initiative will enable PC donations, online virtual resources, study-at-home guides and device connectivity assistance. 

The Intel Online Learning Initiative 
builds on Intel’s long-standing commitment to technology that improves learning. It will begin immediately in regions with the greatest needs across the United States and expand globally. 

The company has also allocated up to $10 million for an innovation fund that supports requests from external partners and employee-led relief projects, addressing critical needs in their communities. 

For example: Intel is working with India’s Council of Scientific and Industrial Research and International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, to deploy Intel client and server solutions to help achieve faster and less expensive COVID-19 testing and coronavirus genome sequencing to 
understand epidemiology and AI-based risk stratification for patients with comorbidities. 

Intel is also collaborating with India's National Association of Software and Service Companies to build an application ecosystem and multicloud back end to enable population scale COVID-19 diagnostics, predict outbreaks and to improve medical care management and administration.
