This month, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Technology Engagement Center hosted a “Tech in the Time of Coronavirus”.
The virtual event focused on key topics such as how tech is driving solutions to address the global pandemic and tech’s role in restarting the economy.
Beep’s CEO, Joe Moye, participated in the discussion alongside Jacksonville Transportation Authority Vice President of Automation, Bernard Schmidt.
The two focused on the joint public-private-partnership to transport COVID-19 tests at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.
“We quickly engaged in a strategy and pulled everyone together across this public-private partnership. I think this a great example of all entities coming together. We went from a Saturday night idea to a launch six days later. It was really a great accomplishment and really speaks to what we can do in times of need,” said Moye on the launch at Mayo Clinic.
“The autonomous platforms are not just important for improving speed and efficiency, but of course for safety. When you look at the role we continue to play at Mayo Clinic in helping the COVID-19 pandemic, the benefits are obvious,” said Schmidt during the discussion.
Other participants included the U.S. Chamber CEO Thomas J. Donohue, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and private sector executives, technology policy experts and thought leaders with Infosys, Instacart and RELX.
