We are genetic Gods, but what about our children?

If you want controversy about our future and the moral choices we are making about our species, then look no further than the topic of Biogenetics. Not only has the method of in vitro caused some extreme reactions from the more religiously inclined, but on the horizon we are beginning to see the dawn of the human made in the laboratory. And it’s causing a storm. I would like to take a glance at this subject from an author’s point of view, where my main concern is, what kind of ethics will make up our future, both as parents for our children, and society as a whole.

Data Mining – the future of education

The education system is undergoing major changes in every country of the world, due to the datafication of the whole process of education. What are those changes? And what are the pitfalls we might be heading for? Also, will this lead to an increasing effectiveness in the education, or will this cause a more distinct stratification of the children. Those who go on to have a future. And those who don’t.

Digital Footprint – the Big Data generation – part 2 of 2

This time, let’s take a look at some of the technology behind the scenes while we surf, and point out some less than obvious ways that our character traits can be analyzed by the A.I. algorithms. Finally, I would like to come full-circle and conclude how we as parents can make a difference and teach our children how they can filter their behaviour online but still be genuine, and make lasting relationships.

Digital footprint – from cradle to grave

The coming generations who inhabit this planet, will leave an ever growing digital footprint behind themselves. This faces our society with many ethical issues on how to deal with our online privacy. Are we headed into a safer world where total transparency is ubiquitous, where everyone knows everything about the other individual? Or is that just wishful thinking? And we are headed for a nightmarish scenario, one with zero privacy and even less freedom, something which Orwell and many other doomsayers were trying to warn us against.

Eksploracja danych – Era braku prywatności.

(This is the polish version of the story – The Age of no privacy)
Czy kiedykolwiek rozważałeś konsekwencje dzielenia się online treściami o swojej rodzinie? Jak niewinne i zabawne może to być, tworzenie rodzinnych więzi i zbliżanie się do siebie. Proces ten ma jednak swoją ciemniejszą stronę. Każdy z nas tworzy kopalnię złota dla algorytmów napędzanych przez sztuczną inteligencję, która będzie napędzać jutrzejszą gospodarkę online. A prywatność i życie naszych dzieci to waluta tej gospodarki.

Will our online privacy be broken forever?

Recent events both in Norway and the US have caused a world wide media storm. On the surface it would seem these two cases are normal criminal proceedings, yet if one looks below the surface and reflects upon the deeper implications of this matter, it becomes quite obvious what is happening now, and why it will have earth shattering consequences for each and one of us. It would also be very naive to think these are some isolated and local issues which concern only the US and Norway when the truth of the matter is this will have impact on the global online community, no matter the launguage nor location. Let’s take a look at what these cases entail and why the future of our and our children’s online privacy is at stake.
