Can you give us a teaser of your talk?

Scaling secure-multiparty computation.

Tell us about what you are working on right now.

Large-scale MPC for distributed RSA modulus generation, privacy-preserving machines learning, secure expert matching

Secure multiparty computation will allow for all of us to collaborate towards a common good while maintaining privacy of our sensitive individual data.

What is your background?

I got my PhD in cryptography and have continued to be fascinated by this subject. My primary research is in developing new secure multiparty computation protocols and zero-knowledge systemes.

What should we look out for in the next 5 years?

How to scale secure multiparty computation to perform machine learning tasks. This will allow for all of us to collaborate towards a common good while maintaining privacy of our sensitive individual data.

Who is doing good work in your field?

Duality.cloud: they are trying to use fully homomorphic encryption to achieve secure machine learning.

Unbound: Using secure multiparty computation for key escrow.
