The Alan Turing Institute
The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence whose mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
The successful candidate will work in partnership with our industry partner HSBC on a project that is aligned to the Privacy and Security research theme within FAIR. This project will investigate the use of Federated Learning and Federated Analytics across different jurisdictions to improve data models.
Privacy enhancing technologies such as differential privacy are sometimes used to overcome privacy concerns linked to Federated Learning, and this project will explore the impact on efficacy when using privacy techniques in federated environments.
The project will also explore the role of other techniques such Multi-Party Computation and Homomorphic Encryption as a means of information sharing and will consider use cases such as fraud prevention.
