The digital space: Here I am human, here I can be (everything)? The Internet and digital applications expand the scope for thought and action. There are almost no limits to access to information, communication and social interaction.

Does this change our image of man? Will humans still be persons, or will they become avatars? How do algorithms and applications influence our behavior? Do we need new fundamental rights or just their consistent implementation in the digital?
