Access & literacy
As the time has been approaching towards development of new technologies, we need to take into account that we are using more digital technologies, and learn how to apply them in daily lives. So, it is important to understand the ways to create safe and knowledgeable environment for our daily living by using modern technologies accurately. That will mean that we will have to create a space, where users can feel secure in their daily activities. It takes a lot from the shareholders, internet-providers and governments to make sure these standards are implemented correctly and sufficiently.

Human rights & privacy
The year 2020 has been marked not only by the COVID-19 pandemic but the George Floyd protests, which began in the United States and spread internationally, including to many countries in Europe. This issue concerns the topic of "algorithmic bias" and how the use of algorithms may put certain marginalised groups at a disadvantage, particularly women and ethnic minorities. In the wake of the George Floyd protests, many companies such as Amazon evaluated how exactly their technologies (e.g. facial recognition) could inadvertently put certain groups at harm. This is also a relevant issue for many companies based in Europe, and the transparency of how some of these algorithms work has been a cause of concern for some leaders, such as Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany. This issue asks questions such as whether self-regulation by companies on algorithmic biases is sufficient, or whether regulation is required, and if regulation is required, in what form?
