Webinar: Synthetic Data: The Future of Data Sharing?

Privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) can enable many organisational and societal benefits from the secondary use and disclosure of non-personal information. While multiple PETs have been in use historically, they are facing headwinds. These vary from a growing number of re-identification attacks, regulator and public concerns, as well as increasingly challenging economics. Synthetic data generation (SDG) has been gaining adoption as a modern PET that can address some of these concerns, while still providing high utility data.

Although the concept has been around for many years, interest in synthetic data generation across a variety of sectors has been growing, given the increased demand for data and technological improvements.

In this session moderated by former UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham CBE, Dr. Khaled El Emam, a leading expert on synthetic data and anonymization, will offer insights and discuss:

  • how synthetic data are generated;
  • different use cases and opportunities;
  • assessing the privacy and utility of synthetic datasets;
  • how to look at privacy risks with synthetic data; and
  • regulatory issues, including regulators’ perspectives.
