Launch of the new Digital Watch observatory

14 September 2020


Event description

[Update] Check out the new Digital Watch observatory.


Launching on Monday, 14th September | Online

We’re launching a brand new version of the Digital Watch observatory, built on a smart mix of expert and AI-powered analysis. While we’ll continue to analyse the 40+ digital policy issues, we’ll also focus on cross-cutting aspects.

Why will this be useful? The new observatory will help you understand issues in an interdisciplinary way. For instance, we’ll look at AI and data policy through the lens of human rights, security, and trade. We’ll also be going further (and include the interplay between the environment and the digital) and deeper to unpack complex issues (such as how the new digital standard is shaping geopolitics and the digital world).
