    Not on the inside of this but willing to bet this is completely mis-reported. Queue announcement from Google or Ascension that they're just using Google Cloud...

      Right? So many worse things going on in the world and under our noses. This doesn’t make the top 100k

    People have always been used as commodities throughout history. Nothing new here. I hope at least the data has been de-identified.

    This really does not help Google's image. Customers will trade privacy for convenience and here the customer didn't benefit. It's this type of behavior that creates animosity.

    If I see any pharmaceutical ads based on my health data, I will sue them. Plus, isn’t this how Baidu got in trouble? Ppl lost their lives because of the misleading pharmaceutical ads on Baidu.
