1st Bioethics Café “Citizens and their Connected Objects: What Happens to their Data?”
This review summarises the discussion during the 1st Bioethics Café of 2019, which focused on the theme: “Citizens and their connected objects: what happens to their data?” Three expert panelists and an audience of 70 people participated in this event. The discussion clarified the benefits that connected objects can have, such as empowerment and individual responsibility, but also highlighted some risks such as hyper normativity or the issue of obtaining valid consent. Potential solutions and regulations were proposed by the public and experts. This event was part of a series of three Bioethics Cafés held in Montreal and Quebec City on the subject of ethics, health and data.
