As data protection becomes more important, it becomes more and more challenging to easily work with such data. How do you both secure data while making it accessible? With homomorphic encryption, users can do just that. Join us in October to hear from one of the leaders in data protection on how data scientists can work with encrypted data.

Enabling Cross-Boundary Data Science with Privacy Enhancing Technologies
Recent breakthroughs in Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) have made it possible to build systems that can keep data encrypted for the entire processing lifecycle. These advances can uniquely enable data scientists to operate on data sets that they otherwise wouldn't be able to access due to an organizational "boundary," such as a security classification or regulatory barrier. This talk will provide a brief introduction to PETs and a detailed walk-through of two algorithms that leverage PETs for data science use cases.

Ryan Carr serves as CTO and VP of Engineering at Enveil, the pioneering Privacy Enhancing Technology company protecting Data in Use. With experience in leading engineering efforts at institutions such as the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Ryan’s fields of expertise include large scale analytic systems, distributed algorithms, artificial intelligence, game theory and social learning, and applying cloud computing techniques to simulate and analyze complex interactions among large numbers of autonomous agents. His research in these areas has been published in highly competitive venues such as Proceedings of the Royal Society, AAAI, and AAMAS. Ryan holds a PhD/BS in Computer Science.
