Chris Boos – Data protection with transparency?

  • How data protection and digital solutions succeed
  • Geist Heidelberg, Lecture

How political can apps be and when does data protection 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. The deciding factors were data protection and the advantages and disadvantages of both centralized and decentralized data storage.

For Chris Boos, who helped develop a Europe-wide app, “full transparency and maximum data protection” are perfectly compatible. The big companies have already shown how it can be done, he says. For him, a good indicator for championing the performance of the European community.

IT entrepreneur and artificial intelligence expert Chris Boos is a member of the German government’s Digital Council.
