Ginger.io (Sloan ’11 founder) monitors phone behavior and mental health

MIT’s Technology Review posted this week about Ginger.io, an app that collects data from your phone usage (bursts of frantic texting, for example) to warn users or doctors of potential illness or manic behavior. Sloan student Karan Singh is a co-founder. Privacy issues abound, but it’s still pretty cool.

  1. Launch Soup, thanks much for the write-up. We’re excited to be launching to help chronic patients and health enterprises alike. Sign-up for our waiting list @ http://ginger.io.

    We agree — privacy is very important — and we take it seriously. You own your data, and decide if you want to share in an aggregated and anonymized fashion. I’d be happy to get into specifics with folks who have questions (@kvsingh) or browse our website for more details on privacy.
