StopCovid ou encore ? – Cédric O

Le choix, selon Cédric O !

“Le choix est donc très simple : tant que l’immunité collective n’est pas atteinte (ce qui est un horizon lointain), l’alternative se résume ainsi :
1. Tout faire pour couper les « départs de feu » le plus rapidement possible, y compris en utilisant des outils numériques comme StopCovid, dans des conditions très encadrées et proportionnées (et dans un contexte où l’ensemble des pays européens prévoient de déployer de tels outils) ;
2. Refuser ces outils pour des raisons philosophiques, mais dans ce cas accepter un risque significatif de malades et de morts supplémentaires.”

#StopCovid : une efficacité incertaine pour des risques réels

“Nous devrions éviter de faire porter à nos concitoyens un dilemme moral : serions non fautifs si nous ne téléchargeons pas cette application? La pression sociale ou le sentiment de culpabilité pourrait faire naître un consentement induit, indirectement contraint.”

GitHub – DP-3T/documents: Decentralized Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing — Documents

“Decentralized Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing This repository contains a proposal for a secure and decentralized privacy-preserving proximity tracing system. Its goal is to simplify and accelerate the process of identifying people who have been in contact with an infected person, thus providing a technological foundation to help slow the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The system aims to minimise privacy and security risks for individuals and communities and guarantee the highest level of data protection.”

PACT: Private Automated Contact Tracing

“Our team at MIT, working with partners from around the world, has developed a system for identifying people at risk of infecting COVID-19, by using the Bluetooth signals that our cell phones send each other. Privacy is a bedrock value so our system can notify individuals of potential contacts without revealing any private information to other individuals, the government, health care providers, or cell service providers.”

Inside China’s controversial mission to reinvent the internet

“On a cool day late last September, half a dozen Chinese engineers walked into a conference room in the heart of Geneva’s UN district with a radical idea. They had one hour to persuade delegates from more than 40 countries of their vision: an alternative form of the internet, to replace the technological architecture that has underpinned the web for half a century. Whereas today’s internet is owned by everyone and no one, they were in the process of building something very different — a new infrastructure that could put power back in the hands of nation states, instead of individuals.”
