Google mining Americans' health data, report says


Google has partnered with one of the nation's largest health care systems to collect millions of Americans' personal health data in an effort to design an artificial intelligence-powered health care service, according to a report.

More than 100 Google employees are already privvy to tens of millions of Americans' lab results, doctor diagnoses, hospitalization records and more. The data will help inform the tech giant's creation of new software that can recommend changes in how patients are cared for, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

Neither doctors nor patients were informed of the initiative, dubbed "Project Nightingale," according to the report.
