Data Dialogue: Data Sharing Without Sharing Data
We can’t reap the benefits of AI without access to the right data. In 2016, the world produced 16 ZB of data but only 1% was analyzed. Centralized data exchanges are lack of fair and flexible pricing mechanisms, data providers lose control over their assets, and there is a lack of transparency in how the data is used. This lack of trust is preventing data sharing. How do we solve this? In this session of data dialogue, we are going to dive deep into how data sharing without sharing data could occur.Topics:
