Abstract: The success and pervasiveness of data analytics and machine learning, under the concept of ‘big data’, stems from an unprecedented state of affairs. Simply put, there has never been a point in time where so much data was available to process and analyze. From judicious data analysis it is possible to accurately deliverable targeted advertising, improve the design of a product or develop winner business strategies. However, the sense of wonder and amazement, which followed (and still follows) the recent advancements in big data analytics, is now being seriously confronted with the impact that massive data collection and analysis has on data privacy. Naturally, a privacy-centric discourse goes against the commercially backed drive to continuously increase data collection and analysis. In addition, this commercial drive must be considered a constant and, pragmatically, to be permanent. This context opens a number of very interesting challenges either technological, social and political.
In this webinar we will cover the approach taken in the SafeCloud Project to build technological solutions for data management in the cloud with strong privacy requirements. In specific, we will cover the technology behind secure data processing in the cloud and cover the challenges that remain to be tackled.
