  • Learn how decentralized technology unlocks compliant data sharing for machine learning applications

描述 (Description)

Machine learning depends on data, which too often is a scarce or siloed resource. Even when data is available, trust issues arise about the quality and ethics of collection.

Roger Chen details how to enable powerful data lineage properties with decentralized data governance models using blockchain technology. As a result, organizations can easily satisfy growing compliance regulations around data privacy while gaining access to rich external data resources for building AI models.
