The Morrison government will expand the use of digital identity checks when businesses and individuals access services online, as part of an $800m package in next week’s budget to increase the take-up of new technologies.

As the government puts the finishing touches on its delayed budget, which is expected to foreshadow a deficit north of $200bn and ongoing high unemployment, the Coalition is rolling out a series of announcements that it says are designed to get the economy moving again.

But the government is coming under pressure for reducing the rate of jobkeeper and jobseeker payments over the past few days, with Labor accusing Scott Morrison of “mishandling this worst recession in almost a century” by cutting economic support “without a proper jobs plan to replace it”.

Ars Electronica Festival Expanded Online To Connect Art, Science And Technology

Since 1979, the Ars Electronica Festival in Austria brings together artists, scientists, engineers and a curious public. This year seemed no different. The exhibits, performances, workshops, talks, and discussions attracted thousands of visitors and hundreds of artists to the main festival sites in the city of Linz. Still, this year was different. Due to the ongoing pandemic and travel restrictions, many people weren’t able to visit Linz in person. But fittingly for an arts and technology festival, Ars Electronica found a creative digital solution.

Certain parts of the festival were available via online video channels and attendees could connect in digital hubs. The channels not only broadcast some of the events in Linz, but also gave a platform to various science art sites around the world.

It’s difficult to make virtual events engaging. Attendees will never have the same sense of connection and the feeling of “being there” as if
