e-SIDES @ EBDVF 2019: Security, Trust and Privacy-preserving Technologies in the Challenging Times of Big Data and AI

Wednesday 16th, 11:00h - 12:30h, Plenary Room

The objective of this session is to introduce the direction the research community is taking to tackle the trust and security challenges that industry is experiencing in the time of significant changes introduced with big data and AI based analytics. The value of Data has become an evident component in the industrial value chain. Legacy systems and software have been collecting and processing data resulting from industrial processes, but many were not designed to share data across systems and across organisational structures. This session aims to look at the ethical, legal and technical challenges that are arising from this paradigm, the economic drivers of the evolution and what approaches are being adopted to address the new socio-technical playing field.
