The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced our lives significantly since March 2020, and a number of initiatives have been put forward in order to tackle its effects, including those focused on technological solutions. In this paper, we present one of such initiatives, i.e. the CLAIRE’s taskforce on AI and COVID-19, in which Artificial Intelligence methodologies and tools are being developed to help the society contrasting the pandemic. We present the different lines of development within the taskforce, some fields in which they are used, and draw few recommendations.
