Carnegie Mellon University: New Tool Simplifies Data Sharing, Preserves Privacy

Carnegie Mellon University: New Tool Simplifies Data Sharing, Preserves Privacy. “Meet Company X. Company X makes a popular product that lots of people – millions, in fact – use on a daily basis. One day, Company X decides it would like to improve some of the hardware in its product, which is manufactured by Vendor Y. To make these improvements, the company would need to share data with Vendor Y about how its customers use the product. Unfortunately, that data may contain personal information about Company X’s customers, so sharing it would be an invasion of their privacy. Company X doesn’t want to do that, so they abandon the improvement opportunity.”
