MPC Beyond the Generic Model -  Private Intersection Analytics



Effective data analysis often relies on information from multiple sources, including private information that cannot be released by its owners.  The challenge is to analyze the data effectively while protecting its privacy. This talk will provide an overview of efficient cryptographic protocols, some of them based on variants of private set intersection (PSI), that can be applied to privately analyze data.
