Killi Ltd (CVE:MYID) (OTCMKTS:MYIDF) said its founder and chief executive, Neil Sweeney has been featured in cybersecurity magazine 'Dark Reading' discussing the tech community’s chance to use “Data for Good” to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
The consumer privacy ecosystem specialist said the article highlighted current tracing applications that aren't working and outlines steps for Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Alphabet Inc’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Google to co-create a universal application using their abundant supply of data and expertise in the consumer application space.
The article also noted, however, that these companies do not want to collaborate on a universal tracing application as it would draw attention to their current data practices, but the pandemic is a rare opportunity to positively change the 'Big Tech' narrative that often focuses on antitrust, misuse of data, and perpetual data collection.
