Can you trust an AI data trust not to slurp your data?

Andrew, did they turn your application down?

In all seriousness, I would have appointed you to the Board of the CDEI. I think you would have been a great counterpoint to the great and the good nodding things along.

Facebook to appeal against ICO fine – says it's a matter of principle not to pay 18 mins' profit

More like “it’s a matter of intimidation”

I suspect this is actually a chance to give the Information Commissioner a bloody nose.

The unfortunate fact is that her enforcement team are not crack prosecutors (think Neasden Trading Standards) and have lost a lot of appeals recently.

Hence Facebook likely want to show her up to deter her from meddling in the future.

Facebook is not a well meaning organisations. It’s logo wasn’t “do no evil” and never will be.

Google: Our DeepMind health slurp is completely kosher

Re: Linklaters

I don’t get this. Surely you would just look at the contract the Royal Free has with DeepMind (released under FoIA).

It says the patient records can only be used to provide the App, must be stored within England, not disclosed to any third party (which includes Google), cannot be linked to any other data etc.

I just don’t see anyway DeepMind could provide any access to this data to the rest of Google without breaching that contract. That’s just a fact.
