Sky News: NHS patients’ data was illegally transferred to Google DeepMind

Sky News: NHS patients’ data was illegally transferred to Google DeepMind. “The transfer of 1.6 million NHS patients’ personally identifying data to Google was illegal, according to the UK’s data watchdog. The Royal Free NHS Trust gave the data to Google DeepMind, the artificial intelligence arm of Google, for the purpose of testing a smartphone app called Streams – and did so without requesting the patients’ permission.”
