“Follow the science!” That’s the refrain in the #COVID19 era, but what does it really mean? Science doesn’t settle on one answer; rather, it provides a framework for making informed decisions. What’s more, it is a process, not an end in itself. And it’s often a moving target. As such, it requires a commitment to transparency and critical thinking.
In this episode of Future Proof, we will examine the nature – and application – of science, in the global context of the novel coronavirus. Dr. Geoffrey Malafsky, a career scientist who cut his teeth at the United States Naval Research Laboratory more than 30 years ago, will examine the data, the methods, and the predictive models that were used to warrant widespread lockdowns of nations all around the world.WEBCAST
