How high is your digital life score?

What if governments would use your private data

In human culture it is not unusual to put people into imaginary ranks, be it because of the way they dress, their education, their career, or kindness. Depending on one's social background the criteria for rating people can be extremely individual. Just like one person can have more best friends and another only one. Does it mean that one person is more popular and therefore has more friends? Maybe. But it could also mean, that one person can have a very different system to subconsciously rate individuals around them.

Nowadays we do not just get scored by humans around us, but also by computers. Social media, online shops, or search engines are collecting our data everyday creating an online persona of us, to show us personalized content or ads. This data can also be bought by organizations or governments, which may help you get a better credit score or maybe even deny you access to certain public places.

With lockdown policies in place in most countries due to the Corona pandemic our impact on the environment becomes more apparent each day. With people isolating at home, not travelling, and planes staying on the ground nature seems to recover from pollution: clear canals in Venice, reduced air pollution in China and major cities all over the world, and a fallen global carbon emission. Still, climate change has not stopped, with a record heatwave in Antarctica, which has impacts on all of our planet's climate, and countries like Germany, which are usually blessed with a lot of rain, facing droughts. Realizing how our own actions can positively or negatively affect our environment is a wakeup call for everyone, as we cannot deny the positive impacts of the lockdown on our environment. So, as the official motto of Earth Day 2020 is climate action, we want to discover what technologies may help us in stopping climate change and creating a better future.

Who knew at the beginning of the year that most of us would be sitting and working from home? And though some of us were familiar with remote work or planned home office days regularly, many entered a whole new aspect of work. If you ask me, I think many companies will allow more of their employees to work from home more often, as they see that there is no lack in work ethics or quality – remote workers even tend to be more productive, as they can schedule their time more flexible. But where there is light, there is also darkness: As more people start working from home, cybercriminals see increasing chances in stealing our data. Therefore, it is important to not forget that you are also handling important and critical information at the home office. But how can we manage to work efficiently and at the same time stay safe online? We at Tomorrow Unlocked got you covered!
