Data analytics and machine learning can provide enormous societal value and foster advancements in many industries. However, most of the valuable data needed to power these innovations remains restricted and siloed due to privacy concerns. This talk will discuss how blockchain technology, combined with privacy-preserving techniques, can enable a secure data market allowing users to share their data for analytics and machine learning while maintaining privacy, transparency, and control—without relying on trust of any central organization.
