#6: Privacy-Preserving Record Linkage

On the 02-December-2021 at 11:00 a.m. the sixth lecture of the Living Lab lecture series will take place. A crucial task in data integration is record linkage or entity resolution that aims at linking records that refer to the same  real-world entity, such as persons. For example, in multi-site medical  research data from several sources (e. g., hospitals) has to be matched to analyze correlations between medical data of the same patient in multiple data sources.
Typically, there is a lack of global identifiers, therefore the linkage can only be achieved by comparing available quasi-identifiers, such as name, address or date of birth. However, in many cases, data owners are only willing or allowed to provide their data for such data integration if there is sufficient protection of sensitive information to ensure the privacy of persons. Privacy-preserving Record Linkage addresses this problem by providing techniques to match records without revealing plaintext data to each other or to third parties.
In our talk we will introduce the audience to state-of-the-art methods, challenges and our research topics in Privacy-preserving Record Linkage.

When will the room become accessible to the audience?

The room will be accessible 5 minutes before the start of the lecture.

Who can participate in the Living Lab activities?

The participation is free for everyone.

Do I need to be familiar with topics such as Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to benefit from the lectures?

No! Not at all.

One of our goals in the Living Lab lecture series is to familiarize everyone with these topics.

Is there any technical requirements to participate in the lecture?

You just need an up-to-date browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome or Chromium.

We would also recommend using headphones for better audio quality.

Should I also turn on my camera/microphone during the lecture?

Not unless you would like to! In general, there is no need to have a camera or microphone to participate in the lecture.

In that case, how can I ask a question and provide feedback?

Alongside joining the discussion with your camera and microphone, there is also the possibility to submit your question and comments as a written comment in the Chat section.

How can I easily get informed about future activities of the Living Lab?
