Artificial intelligence has marked a before and after in the history of computing, in technological evolution. However, this type of development is unreliable for people, since it puts at risk the use of confidential data and information to be used for other particular interests of companies. This paper evaluates the most salient aspects of artificial intelligence associated with new technologies and its impact on society during the pandemic period. Social needs in the period of social distancing, confinement and how a life of confinement is made acceptable with the use of technological tools are evaluated. A set of scientific publications, academic material, technical reviews are taken into account and it can be observed that new technologies are useful and necessary in the pandemic, however, it is not enough to cover human needs.
