Privacy, The API Economy and new revenue sources

The biggest challenge with digital data is the ease of copying and transferring it with no trace. There exist algorithms that enable running analytics on data without actually ever getting access to the data. However, they used to be too slow for practical purposes.

NEC has developed a set of algorithms and protocols that ARE fast enough. With present day cloud technologies we can offer running fraud detection, financial analytics, next best offer, credit rating and digital advertising with no exposure to the user or partner data. This opens up a world of possibilities for new revenue channels in the API economy, and better protection against data theft and cybercrime. Several practical examples will be covered in the talk.
