Data Privacy and AI: Join the Digital Debate

Garrett Long

Jun 15, 2020

Data plays a central role in nearly every facet of business today, and this is especially true for capital markets teams. Now more than ever, financial institutions need new approaches to optimize their business with information assets while respecting stringent data privacy requirements.

Based on their scale, banks should have a competitive advantage to optimize their business and drive differentiated value to their clients by combining their various data assets. However, there is a divide emerging between banks that are able to fully utilize data to drive differentiated value to their clients, and those that cannot. All capital markets teams need a new way to maintain client trust and regulatory obligations while extracting maximum commercial value via advanced data analytics.

At LeapYear Technologies, we have dedicated the last five years enabling financial institutions to share and extract value from sensitive datasets while achieving automated privacy and compliance. Our platform leverages the latest advances in cryptography, with a focus on differential privacy, and breaks down the barriers to effective use of sensitive information. LeapYear has teamed up with AI Data Science and Trading to bring a dive deep into the conversation surrounding AI, machine learning, and sensitive data use during AIDST Digital Week.

On Friday, June 26th at 1:10 pm EST, join the conversation at our digital debate: Challenges from Data Preparation to Deployment – AI Governance and Privacy. Tune in to listen to a panel of experts discuss the current concerns in AI, future possibilities, and how to ensure data privacy. 

In this digital debate, topics will include: 

  • Trading data and third-party involvement 
  • The future of data privacy 
  • The new face of data regulations
