Congress must protect our privacy from these amoral tech companies. We need to start arresting their corporate officers.
Google may had good intentions, but stealing people's health data - not asking, stealing! - now makes all this operation fishy. This is ground for a huge lawsuit and I hope this company burns into the grounds. This may be wishful-thinking, but I can dream, right?
Well, well, well.
Look who grabbed the smelling salt all of a sudden.

You're not wrong, but here's the thing, though. Everyone wants to benefit from it, but most people would be suspicious about contributing with it - not without reason - and slapping down a document for them to sign wouldn't help either.
If Google only asked each person individually for their data, the system would never work. AI Learning only works with large data sets to identify subtle patterns. If it was only opt-in, they would never have enough data, and wouldn't be able to make accurate evaluations for the people that did opt-in.
It's like a reverse tragedy of the commons. They have the potential to do public good, but only if they create a new commons of medical data where none currently exists.
I'm not saying that Google is right about this. They don't have a lot of trust after their past decisions. But asking for permission would never work.
They need to be seized, destroyed and everyone above dept. director put in prison.
Good on Google. Because of your medical history, you are no longer commercially viable, and we're going to have to revoke all your google services. No youtube, gmail, internet, phone, or medical until further notice. Thanks for choosing google, your number one global retailer.
I'm 100% certain that this is a HIPPA violation.
