Your Quarterly Transatlantic Technology News | Issue 1
Hidden Layers is our new technology newsletter covering tech policy developments in the United States and the European Union. In this inaugural edition, we discuss some of the main tech policy discussions that occurred at the end of 2021 and early 2022, including the U.S. and EU’s approach to regulating Big Tech and Facebook whistleblower hearings, the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council, privacy legislation, and a debate over the use of artificial intelligence for mass surveillance.
