Hidden Layers Newsletter
Your Quarterly Transatlantic Technology News
Hidden Layers is our new technology newsletter covering tech policy developments in the United States and the European Union, to keep both sides of the Atlantic informed on a quarterly basis.
In this issue, we discuss tech legislation making headlines in the first half of 2022, including the EU’s Digital Markets Act (DMA), Digital Services Act (DSA), Digital Governance Act (DGA), and the U.S. Congress’ proposed Digital Platform Commission Act. We also cover the latest on the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council meeting in France, the new transatlantic data transfer agreement, and the use of AI to interpret human emotion.
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.
