Did Google DeepMind make “inexcusable” errors?

Two health data stories made headlines last week. Google is getting lots of attention for making “inexcusable” errors in its data-sharing agreement with NHS. And the maker of connected vibrator We-Vibe settled for $3.7M after a class-action lawsuit alleging the company secretly collected and transmitted users’ personally identifiable information.


But last week wasn't all data breaches. We also learned that studies conducted entirely via smartphones can be "feasible, fruitful, and scalable"—and Gates and Google vets raised two new funds to invest in healthcare, including digital health.
