Without enough human contact tracers to identify infected people, the US is barreling toward a digital solution, and possible disaster, says Bruce Schneier.
“My problem with contact tracing apps is that they have absolutely no value,” Schneier told BuzzFeed News. “I’m not even talking about the privacy concerns, I mean the efficacy. Does anybody think this will do something useful? … This is just something governments want to do for the hell of it. To me, it’s just techies doing techie things because they don’t know what else to do.”
