Andreas Weigend on Data for the People

Of all the data we create and share, perhaps none is more important — or more sensitive —  than data about our health.  The wearable tech revolution has given us, as patients and individuals, control – but we also must think about what we, and others, do with the data that we collect.

Andreas Weigend, author of Data for the People, Professor at Stanford and Berkeley, Director of the Social Data Lab, and former Chief Scientist at Amazon,  keynoted the recent NeuroTech San Francisco conference.   Following is a link to his interview with Unity Stoakes of StartUp Health, where he discusses the reality of social data, including his 5 rules:

  • The right to access (one’s data)
  • The right to amend
  • The right to blur
  • The right to play
  • The right to port
