    Of course, all these tools for ResearchKit bring up the same issues of privacy for medical data and its misuse by insurance companies and marketers.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:23:29 PM
    Williams: There is nothing more sensitive than your medical data. You decide what apps and research you participate in. You decide how your data is shared, and Apple will not see your data

    Time for a video with researchers talking about this
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:24:15 PM
    When Tim Cook was promoted to CEO, Jeff Williams is the man he picked to take over his job as operations chief.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:24:22 PM
    Apple shares now up over 1 percent, or $1.36, to $127.96.
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:24:30 PM
    Yes, Apple won't see it, but will your insurance company ask for access eventually? And, how personally identifiable will data you submit to research projects be?
  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:24:49 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:24:59 PM
    Researchers all saying there's a need to transform how we do research. And iPhone can help with that. Can help design the apps for clinical studies, etc.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:25:28 PM
    Kind of interesting that Williams introduced this, not Craig Federighi, the software chief.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:25:41 PM

  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:27:48 PM
    Big applause for ResearchKit. Seems to hit the right non-commercial note with the audience here.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:28:07 PM
    Williams: We're going to add to ResearchKit over time, but we wanted anybody anywhere to contribute. We're going to make this open source
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:28:17 PM
    Apple plus open source, two terms you rarely hear in the same breath.
  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:28:20 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:28:23 PM

  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:29:15 PM
