EE Talk: The Role of Privacy-Preserving Computation Frameworks Enabling Cooperation in Business and Legal Contracts

November 9, 2023 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM IST

Title: The Role of Privacy-Preserving Computation Frameworks Enabling Cooperation in Business and Legal Contracts

Abstract:  Collaborative data analytics and the usage of advanced software controls are core elements for transformation of the industrial systems and automotive systems of today to future ‘smart’ manufacturing and mobility. In many scenarios within Industry 4.0 systems, innovation is limited due to data being siloed between competing business organizations or entities in an organization. Similarly, the concern for lack of sufficient protection mechanisms limit several transformations within the mobility/automotive domain. Effective protection mechanisms can enable the usage of data sources without the loss of competitive edge and software controls without the fear of misuse. While modification of traditional IT security methods have been actively proposed for these domains, we argue these are typically insufficient. In this talk, we discuss the role of privacy-preserving computation frameworks as a technical supplement to business and legal contracts to enable cooperation. Additionally, we highlight constraints for these systems (with a focus on automotive) that make the use of traditional methods challenging.
