  • Special Topics and Emerging Issues in Public Data: How Privacy-Preserving Technologies Can Influence Data and Policy

    When the U.S. Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking issued its unanimous recommendations to Congress in 2017, it called for the exploration of new approaches that promote data access and privacy preservation at the same time. This webinar discusses an application of one such technology – multi-party computation – in a real-world setting to assess the applicability of the approach in public agencies.

    A demonstration project in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania applied privacy-preserving approaches to generate responses to policy-relevant questions about mental health services, homelessness services, and other public health policies. This demonstration project offers a compelling example of how the technologies can be deployed—which can advance consideration of the approach within agencies at all levels of government. Register today to learn how this new technology could impact the data you rely on.
