About this event

Data is everywhere. You interact with it: by calculating how much balance you have after buying something and looking at your SpO2 monitor while doing your favorite sport. The same data is being persisted somewhere, which can be used for various things. How can we make this data meet social and legal norms if we collect user data?

In this presentation, we'll talk about ways of sharing data and anonymizing to ensure data privacy with an example of an insurance data company or a competition site for instance:  Zindi. We will look into identifiers e.g personal identifiable information, sampling, k-anonymity, and differential privacy using machine learning techniques. The presentation will be helpful for data scientists, analysts, machine learning engineers, and software engineers working in health care and other disciplines.
