Digital life journey
Framework for a self-determined life of citizens in an increasingly digitized world (basic research paper)
As the digitization of everyday life continues, we are perceiving many digital achievements as assisting us in our living and working environments. Most of these new digital services are based on data, or in more concrete terms, our personal data. Making a list of who processes which of our data for what purposes appears virtually impossible. Yet the question is: Would it be possible to describe the individual citizen in their entirety by combining all their data - the ""digital me"" so to speak? This report examines the basis for a self-determined life of every citizen. It represents a digital life journey showing how the individual can regain sovereignty over their data, and how society, technology, ethics, law, and economics have to work together.
