The Covid-19 pandemic has seen the European institutions shift much of their focus to aiding Europe’s response to the unfolding crisis. This has seen some interruptions to the Commission’s plans to regulate artificial intelligence, data and digital services. Equally, the pandemic has brought to light the many ways technology can be used by both the public and private sectors to mitigate the impacts of the virus on health care services, economies and societies. How have the Commission’s plans for the tech sector changed or been delayed? How has the pandemic changed the Commission’s thinking about the tech sector and cooperating with the industry?
