Nonprofit cancer research hospital Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) announced a data partnership with Paige.AI, a for-profit startup looking to use machine learning to better identify cancer in pathology slides prepped from patients. Paige.AI will have exclusive access to the extensive pathology library that MSK has been developing by treating patients for the past 60 years in order to train its algorithms. The contreversy in this partnership is fundamentally rooted in a lack of transparency to stakeholders in the data set being used. Paige.AI was founded by members of the board of directors of MSK, and they failed to disclose the exclusive partnership that they staked out with regard to the data to all of the potential owners.
