In unprecedented times like these, we all must do what we can to help. With the treasure trove of data made available on March 16, 2020 by Kaggle for the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset Challenge (CORD-19), DataRobot wants to empower anyone wishing to assist and contribute their knowledge by answering 10 key questions about the novel virus.

One of the toughest parts of using data to answer the 10 questions is the process of preparing it: profiling, exploring, joining, cleaning, shaping, creating new features and building targets from the data so that it can feed our models. DataRobot Paxata is a market-leading solution that dramatically reduces the data preparation time, through a simple point-and-click interface, so that researchers can quickly get the data to the models. And to do our part, DataRobot is offering our DataRobot Paxata software, for free, to anyone who wants to join the fight to stop the spread of infectious diseases.

For researchers leveraging the DataRobot Paxata Cloud Free - AI for Good Edition, note that we have pre-loaded all of the COVID-19 open research dataset into the Data Prep environment. Furthermore, we have pre-aggregated the 13200+ individual papers into single datasets to give researchers a jump start on working with the data and accelerate their path to getting the data into models.

Once your data is prepared, simply push it to the DataRobot AI Platform to unleash the power of our end-to-end AI platform.
