Chris Boos - Privacy with transparency?

How political can apps be and when does privacy become dogmatic?
In the course of the corona pandemic, a European standard for a corona app was to be developed, which ultimately resulted in national solutions. Decisive factors in this were data protection and the advantages and disadvantages of centralised and decentralised data storage.

For Chris Boos, who was involved in the development of a Europe-wide app, "full transparency and maximum data protection" are perfectly compatible. The big companies have already shown how it works. For him, a good indicator of the European community's performance.

Chris Boos, an IT entrepreneur and expert in artificial intelligence, is a member of the German government's "Digital Council".
