The Special Eurobarometer “Attitudes towards the impact of
digitisation and automation on daily life” was designed to gauge public opinion in a range of areas related to digital technologies, robots and

- The way social network users judge the trustworthiness of stories seen on these sites,

- Attitudes towards robots and
artificial intelligence, including their impact on jobs, and the

- The use of online healthcare, citizens’ desire for online access to their own health and
