Data Ethics Revisited

The companies that make connected products need to take ethical responsibility for the products they develop and the way they process data.

This statement is as true today as it was in the fall of 2018 when Seluxit took steps to actively address the topic of data ethics.

The problem remains that what is ethically responsible is not always clear cut.

That’s why Seluxit tasked an industrial PhD in Philosophy (Jakob Thrane Mainz) to help us navigate data ethics. The result was a collection of 10 principles of data ethics to help us and our customers determine what is ethical regarding data from connected products.

We’ve recently reformatted and republished the 10 principles, also translating them to German. You can read the full set here on our website.

I am a nerdy person who loves going into depth in diverse areas of knowledge. The less I know about a matter, the more I can learn. I always find it exciting to meet people with a different area of expertise from mine. Solving challenging problems is one of the most exciting things to do and working in a group is always more rewarding than working alone. Working with engaged, driven people, women, men, old, young, different professions, cultures, and religions is a great experience. In my work as co-founder of Seluxit, I have gained in-depth knowledge in the field of the Internet of Things, from wireless communication protocols, over cryptology and security, to cloud services and user interfaces. Doing an IPO with Seluxit in 2018 has been a fascinating journey and taught me a lot about business plans, due diligence, PR/IR, and how to professionalize and grow a listed company. Next to my work, I engage very actively in climate change discussions. My main focus is on finding solutions and the effects that CO2 has on our human body. You can find my articles about this subject on Medium and some videos on YouTube. I enjoy running, playing piano, and socializing to balance my busy work life in my free time.
