10 technology trends to watch in the COVID-19 pandemic

 
The World Economic Forum has identified 10 key technology trends which have been accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis. What all have in common is the digital component which relies on resiliant and ubiquitous networks.

Digital tech allows businesses to stay open while reducing the risk for further contagions, empower students to keep on remotely learning or accelerate telehealth. Building the necessary infrastructure to support a digitised world and stay current in the latest technology will be essential for any business or country to remain competitive in a post-COVID-19 world, as well as take a human-centred and inclusive approach to technology governance. As much as these trends are accelerated now, they also will make our societies more resilient in the future and continue to evolve well beyond this crisis.

The world's first voluntary industry standard for fighting disinformation

In October 2018, online platforms signed the world's first voluntary industry standard for fighting disinformation, The Code of Practice on Disinformation.

An independent study was conducted on the code and it revealed that while it is the first step in the fight against disinformation, it can be improved and should be fully and uniformally implemented. In response to the study's findings, the European Commission plans to assess the code of practice and keep fighting disinformation.
