Open questions

  • Opt in per applet?
  • Opt in once per user?
    • Opt out per applet?

For each MindLogger response type, how does Open Humans API expect that data from MindLogger’s API?

Project plan


What is the problem or value proposition addressed by the project? Why is it being sponsored?

Open Humans is a platform that allows you to upload, connect, and privately store your personal data – such as genetic, activity, or social media data. Once you’ve added data, you can choose to donate it: you might choose to share some publicly , and you can join and contribute to diverse research projects. Thus, we turn the traditional research pipeline on its head: you are at the center and in control of when you share your data.
