CWI and TNO are jointly organising the 2021 edition of the CWI in Business event revolving around Secure Multi-Party Computation (MPC).
MPC offers a cryptographic approach for privacy-protecting secure data sharing and -processing. This area is gaining worldwide recognition as a potential solution to an increasing number of applications, for instance in health and finance.
During the last decade, many scientific results contributed to significant improvements of the efficiency of these techniques, thereby bringing MPC further towards maturity. On the other hand, the development of big data and artificial intelligence has established a growing need for secure data analysis mechanisms on distributed sensitive data. A further incentive is given by the requirements of the European privacy laws (GDPR). This event will give a scientific overview of the field, and present a number of use cases that were solved by means of MPC.
CWI in Business will take place online and is freely accessible after registration (registration open in August). For more information, including the preliminary programme, see: https://www.cwi.nl/cwiinbusiness2021
