Killi Featured in Dark Reading on Using “Data for Good” to Control the Pandemic
Commentary from Neil Sweeney, Founder and CEO of Killi, on the opportunity for the tech community to use data to fight the novel coronavirus.
New York, New York–(Newsfile Corp. – August 24, 2020) – Killi Ltd. (TSXV: MYID) (OTC: MYIDF), a global leader in consumer privacy, announces that its Founder and CEO, Neil Sweeney, was featured in Dark Reading magazine to discuss the tech community’s chance to use “Data for Good” to fight the pandemic.
The article highlights current tracing applications that aren’t working and outlines steps for Apple and Google to co-create a universal application using their abundant supply of data and expertise in the consumer application space.
- Current tracing applications aren’t working as a result of mismanagement, data breaches and politics.
- Tech leaders have the expertise to create a consumer-facing application that would have ubiquitous distribution overnight (App Store, Google Play Store) and trace the virus across borders.
- These companies do not want to collaborate on a universal tracing application, as it would draw attention to their current data practices.
- The pandemic is a rare opportunity to positively change the ‘Big Tech’ narrative that often focuses on antitrust, misuse of data, and perpetual data collection.
