Tobi

Data selection, algorithmic bias and user vulnerability

Tobi is a 37 year old self-trained musician and tech enthusiast. As a child, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, when tests showed that his body was unable to produce enough insulin to regulate his blood glucose levels. Tobi lives a busy life and does not want his condition to slow him down.

Dietmar

Equal access to mHealth technology?

Sofia

Informed consent

Sofia is suspicious of ‘free’ software. Assuming that paid-for services will probably respect her privacy better, she has recently subscribed to an app called GreyWay (slogan: „Stay fit all the way, from birth until you’re grey“), which promises to use personal health and lifestyle data to provide both general and customized health advice.
