NIST Unveils New Competition to Advance Data Utilization, Privacy Protection

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched a new challenge that aims to develop a new platform that will work to provide researchers access to personally identifiable information while ensuring data privacy.

NIST said in a Challenge.gov notice The Unlinkable Data Challenge is a multi-stage competition that calls for participants to propose a method for the de-identification of a dataset and provide conceptual platforms that describe how to adopt and combine methods to prevent privacy loss.

Competitors should propose an algorithm designed to optimize data privacy and utility and a dataset that would serve as a use case for the proposed algorithm.

NIST will accept submissions through July 26 and announce the winners on Sept. 12, according to the notice.
