In Episode 54, Erin K. Banks and Brett Roberts met with Steve Touw, CTO of Immuta and he runs the product roadmap for the company which means he talks to customers a lot and he plans out the vision of the company and what they work on. Immuta, is a data management platform that was built to manage access and control of data and to help manage privacy when building machine learning models. They lean towards enabling compliance and ethical data science operations in organizations. We review the data policy snowflake concept and the pain that comes with it and how the control plane helps. We discuss security vs privacy and differential privacy as well as purpose based restrictions with regard to data management. Of course we can’t talk about data and privacy without discussing GDRP.
