The key insights from the talk includes how data can be a life saver during these times. Certainly data can help allocate precious resources , for instance, emergency medical equipment. Abhishek talks about how virtual assistants can help consumers connect with banks and businesses. Being a data scientist himself he recommends other data scientists to build short term models to take care of this situation. In addition he suggests proper validation mechanisms to minimise bias.

In conclusion, Abhishek wants the data scientists to also be experimentative, open to alternate data and to stay curious.
