Part 1: Homomorphic Encryption for Beginners

We cover the basics of homomorphic encryption, followed by a brief overview of open source HE libraries and a tutorial on how to use one of those libraries (namely, PALISADE).

Why is Privacy-Preserving NLP Important?

Why is Privacy-Preserving NLP Important?

A number of people ask us why we should bother creating NLP tools that preserve privacy. Apparently not everyone spends hours thinking about data breaches and privacy infringements.
