A thousand billion dollars up in smoke: in a few short months last year, the giants of Silicon Valley suffered their worst drop in stock prices since the global economic crisis of 2008. So to improve its own health, Big Tech has decided to take over ours.
Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon have already started replacing national health structures by mining their users’ personal data. Through artificial intelligence and their boundless capacity for innovation, they have inserted themselves into a failing health-care sector, which they see as just another market to conquer.
Google sorts patients in British emergency rooms. Apple takes the world's pulse, and has promised to make improving public health "its greatest contribution to mankind." Facebook has its own Zuckerberg Hospital and shares its users' "secret medical information" with the pharmaceutical industry. As for Amazon, Jeff Bezos's company has started delivering medicine, and is entering the medical-insurance market.
Is our health the next sector facing Uberization? Will nations be able to protect their citizens from the maneuvers of the Big Four?
