Worldwide Data Dilemmas: contact-tracing apps during corona times

Featured image

Online event by Amsterdam Smart City and Datalab Amsterdam
Worldwide we are seeing digital technologies implemented in response to the corona crisis. Contact-tracing apps are among the most promising yet controversial solutions already adopted in China, Singapore, South Korea, Israel and Czech Republic. In combination with increased testing, these technologies are said to be necessary to restart the economy while preventing a second wave of the epidemic. The Netherlands is also investigating the implementation of contact-tracing apps, along with other solutions which can help us transition to the new “1.5 meter society”.
Join the first online Data Dilemmas event hosted by Amsterdam Smart City and Datalab Amsterdam on the 23th of April. In this interactive session we will explore international perspectives along with the Dutch experience. What can we learn from countries already using contract-tracing apps or other digital solutions in response to the crisis? What data are collected and how are they stored and shared? Is it possible to ensure privacy and what are the long-term risks and benefits of adopting these technologies?
