Today’s episode looks at the trend called “social scoring” where ‘good’ behavior earns positive scores and ‘bad’ behaviour is ‘punished’ with lower scores. Now, Sebastian will argue that this will be a force for good in the world while Dirk thinks this may be decremental to freedom, democracy and society at large… It is up to you to decide who had the better arguments.
