RALEIGH – Red Hat is not known necessarily as a life science firm, but the open source technology giant is going after COVID-19 as part of two new efforts to combat the global scourge.

The Hatters, which are part of IBM but remain based in Raleigh, disclosed the new efforts Monday:

Its Innovation Labs is working with the World Health Organization to boost the training of people to fight the pandemic as well as other health issues.
It has partnered with a Canada-based artificial intelligence firm tha has helped developed tools to better detect COVID-19 and to rank risks through chest imaging.

Bernardo Mariano, chief information officer and director of Digital Health at The World Health Organization said of the Red Hat effort:

“Working with Red Hat Open Innovation Labs provided a more flexible and responsive approach for creating solutions using open source technologies. We were able to build a DevOps platform that can not only deliver relevant, timely COVID-related information and knowledge to health workers globally, but one that can also scale and adapt to their future needs.”
