Future of Blockchain-based Data Marketplaces: Challenges and Impact

Come learn what’s next for Data Marketplaces, and how Blockchain can solve the Data Privacy and Security Conundrum.

1st Session>> What’s next for Data Marketplaces, presented by DATAVLT

AI has created a huge demand for user data and Blockchain could give individuals the ability to control and sell their own.

To develop AI applications, companies need access to massive datasets to create predictive models. This is why tech giants with significant amounts of data like Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and China’s Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent are leaders in the field of AI. For others, obtaining a lot of quality data can be challenging. As a result, emerging blockchain startups began offering “data marketplaces” that widens access to AI training data. Why then are data marketplaces still not gaining sufficient traction?

2nd Session>> Blockchain: Solving the Data Privacy and Security Conundrum, presented by JedTrade

With recent breaches in data protection from several large organizations, there is an increasing concern in data privacy and security from individuals as well as regulators. This ultimately poses a challenge to open data marketplaces. Blockchain can be a solution to this data privacy and security conundrum by providing trust and immutability to the data sharing process. However, managing and regulating consent on the blockchain alone may not be sufficient.

How can we leverage technology to protect the data of users and yet allow meaning analysis at the same time?
