The coil takes an enlightening, frightening, and occasionally hilarious look into implantable technology.

Interesting paper ‘Big Data Ethics‘ by Richards & King published in the Wake Forest Law Review:
We are on the cusp of a “Big Data” Revolution, in which increasingly large datasets are mined for important predictions and often surprising insights. The predictions and decisions this revolution will enable will transform our society in ways comparable to the Industrial Revolution. We are now at a critical moment; big data uses today will be sticky and will settle both default norms and public notions of what is “no big deal” regarding big data predictions for years to come.
In this paper, we argue that big data, broadly defined, is producing increased powers of institutional awareness and power that require the development of a Big Data Ethics. We are building a new digital society, and the values we build or fail to build into our new digital structures will define us. Critically, if we fail to balance the human values that we care about, like privacy, confidentiality, transparency, identity and free choice with the compelling uses of big data, our Big Data Society risks abandoning these values for the sake of innovation and expediency.

The NHS are making some big changes to how sensitive medical information is handled - your medical records, in identifiable form, will be extracted from GP surgeries. They will be held centrally and then may be made available to a variety of people and institutions from university researchers to think tanks and businesses. The data will be available in different forms for different purposes – sometimes ‘anonymised’, sometimes ‘pseudonymised’, sometimes identifiable.
There are potential benefits to this new system and also potential risks. The important point is that the new system fundamentally alters the concept of doctor-patient confidentiality. Your medical data will be shared with people not directly involved in your care including potentially insurers, and will no longer be protected by medical confidentiality but only by data protection compliance or contract terms and conditions
