The Politics of Personal Health Data The Politics of Personal Health Data Presentation Transcript

  • the emerging politics of personal data @wilbanks 2/18/14
  • http://www.technologyreview.com/featuredstory/520426/the-real-privacy-problem/
  • 1. give me a place to stand, and a lever, and i shall move the world.
  • every age has its own lever.
  • ours is cheap data.
  • cheap data changes how we justify our opinions.
  • OPS = AB(H + BB + HBP) + TB(AB + BB + SF + HBP) / AB(AB + BB + SF + HBP)
  • cheap data is changing our politics.
  • cheap data is going to change our health.
  • 2. research data v. cheap consumer data
  • https://www.scienceexchange.com/
  • 3. increasing tensions.
  • tension between anonymity and utility.
  • tension between expectation and reuse.
  • tension between aggregate value and individual value.
  • if it can be sold, it will be sold at the lowest possible price.
  • maybe capital is the wrong metaphor.
  • tension between technology rate of change and policy rate of change.
  • our regulatory environment
  • 4. “make an app for that” isn’t enough in health.

  • assume 1,000,000 downloads assume 10% false positive rate 100,000 doctor visits $1000 per biopsy
  • that’s the setup.
  • 5. ! we need freedoms, not just free stuff, for data to change health for the better.
  • freedoms granted to small but coherent groups can create asymmetrically valuable resources.
  • small group sharing
  • proven to work in: software content
  • let’s try a small but coherent group to share data and see if it works in breast cancer.
  • code sharing a prerequisite.
  • accuracy of model jumped three orders of magnitude in nine days.
  • 76% accurate. 51

  • SHOW ME THE CODE!

  • let’s try a small but coherent group to share data and see if it works in “big science”.
  • TCGA Pan-Cancer Consortium Analysis of: 12 Tumor types, 6 molecular profiling platforms ! Focus series of: 4 papers in Nature Genetics, with 14 more to follow in other NPG journals Omberg,  et  al.  Nature  Gene*cs
  • 68 core projects
  • 1070 datasets
  • 1723 results
  • 18 papers in press
  • let’s try a small but coherent group to share data and see if it works in health.
  • “eat less and exercise”
  • the experiment:
  • all boxes must be checked volunteer must click to proceed

  • http://files.snpedia.com/reports/promethease_data/genome_jtw_ui2.html
  • “Also there is no suggestion of consanguinity in your pedigree.” ! http://www.ianlogan.co.uk/
  • (not so good)
  • requires coherence and scale - easier to enforce in closed systems…
  • 5. someone’s going to achieve coherence and scale.
  • image via http://jawbone.com/
  • image via http://macrumors.com/
  • but will we be allowed to opt out? image via http://gawker.com
  • thus we have to talk about the politics of data.
  • three choices for coherence and scale.
  • a. “just like now, but moreso”
  • b. the cartel.
  • c. an open system.
