The Tech Response to COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the products and services offered by tech companies have kept many of us entertained, connected with friends and families, and ensured we could still get our favourite foods at home.

However, in many nations contact-tracing apps have fallen short, platforms have allowed the spread of health misinformation, and gig economy workers have been left without physical and financial protections.

We host a conversation to explore the tech companies and industry response to COVID-19, with panellists:

  • Prof Phil Howard, Director, OII
  • Carly Kind, Director, Ada Lovelace Institute
  • Ravi Naik, Co-founder, AWO
  • Ana Grouverman, Group Product Manager, Spotify
