Lukas Helminger, TU Graz

From 17th to 20th June, I attended the Theory and Practice of Multi-Party Computation Workshops in Tel-Aviv at the Bar-Ilan University. As the title already hints on the one side, it was a perfect opportunity to hear direct from experts on new theoretical approaches that could in the near future lead to significant improvements in practice. On the other side, I heard talks about the latest deployments of multi-party computation protocols for commercial use, ranging from collaborative fraud detection to genotype analysis. As valuable as the talks itself was the chance to engage in fruitful discussions with colleagues from all over the world. I am convinced that the new ideas and insights gained at the workshop are highly applicable in the Safe-DEED project.
