On May 15, 2019, our colleagues of Orange were present at the 22nd edition of Forum 5i to promote and disseminate some PAPAYA results. This forum offers a great opportunity to industries and startups to showcase recent innovation in the field of Artificial intelligence to more than 500 visitors.
From April 2 to 4, 2019, Orange hosted the Salon de la Recherche, an annual research show, held in the city of Châtillon, in the suburbs of Paris, France.
On March 29th, 2019, the PAPAYA project participated to the 13th meeting of the Community of Users on Secure, Safe and Resilient Societies (thematic group #4 on cyber issues), which was held in Brussels and organized by the EU commission.
On March 28th, 2019, the PAPAYA project participated to a face-to-face meeting of H2020 projects focusing on GDPR compliance. This meeting was held in Brussels and hosted by the EU commission.
The third consortium meeting of the PAPAYA project took place on March 5 and 6 of 2019 in Madrid (Spain) in the premises of ATOS Spain.
Last 5th of December, PAPAYA Project was presented by Aljosa Pasic, director of Technology Transfer in Atos Research and Innovation Spain, at the round table of Aegis Cyber Event in Vienna.
Multi-Setting Data Processing Protocols
There are several use cases intended to cover a realistic and wide variety of scenarios, where data flows interact with diverse sources and/or destinations. These collaborative analytics require a thoughtful analysis about the actors involved in terms of data protection and privacy, in order to conform to existing General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Efficient Privacy-Preserving Big Data Analytics
The PAPAYA project provides tools that enable computation over a wide range of operations, from simple statistics to sophisticated machine learning algorithms, in a most efficient manner and while attaining functional requirements of a set of realistic scenarios we propose to validate the platform against.
Integrated Big Data Analytics Platform
PAPAYA´s final technical goal is to define a common framework for privacy-preserving Big Data Analytics that shows the relationship among privacy, protocols and analytics in each of the settings described and that fits into the each of the use cases. Besides, the platform should provide usable, user-friendly and accesible safeguard options.
Risk Management and User-Centric Dashboard
The PAPAYA platform will offer default, privacy-friendly configurations to users in order to enable a flexible trade-off between privacy and utility in Big Data Analytics, thus reducing the risk of data leakage. PAPAYA provides a dashboard which enables visualization to the data protection and privacy provisioned. Consequently this transparency increases trust in Big Data providers for Data Analytics while complying with existing regulations that focus on end-users' data protection and privacy.
End-to-End Use Case Validation
Two different use cases are proposed, healthcare and web analytics. The goal here is to derive functional and non-functional requirements that conform to the needs of the data analytics in question. These requirements evolve together with the design and implementation of the PAPAYA platform. This is also useful to ensure final validation of the platform according to the mentioned use cases.
Dissemination and Exploitation
The consortium will exploit the project results in the relevant communities, sectors (industrial, academic). Innovation and knowledge transfer activites are also contemplated in order to reach data analytics groups and stakeholders of interest.
