Gamification in health sounds tempting - playful elements that motivate us to live healthier lives. But there are ethical pitfalls lurking here too

Hans-Henrik Dassow, research associate at the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Bremen, brings a unique perspective on ethics in digital public health. We will discuss, among other things:

  •     Justice and health: is it fair for health insurance companies to give discounts for wearing pedometers? What ethical questions arise here?
  •     Philosophical considerations: How can philosophical approaches help to understand and address the challenges of digital public health?
  •     Gamification in health: What are the advantages and disadvantages of incorporating game-like elements into health apps? What does this mean for data collection and its quality?
