TRUSTEE aims to utilise self-sovereign technologies and state-of-the-art homomorphic encryption, offering a socially and environmental-aware framework for cross discipline federation of data.
What is TRUSTEE about
In accordance with the principles of responsible/trustworthy AI and by employing a co-development approach as the foundation methodology, TRUSTEE proposes a secure-by-design Federated Platform in accordance with EU data strategy (COM (2020) 66) and the main EU reference architectures (GAIA-X, EOSC, EGI) in the sector, capable of ensuring interoperability, enabling cross-border scenarios, and scaling a variety of AI-based applications through the use of open APIs, with the goal of making the EU the world's most secure and trustworthy data hub.
How will TRUSTEE achieve those goals
To achieve this, we employ a novel homomorphic approach that ensures user-friendly, safe, trustworthy, compliant, fair, transparent, accountable, and long-term data collection, storage, processing, querying, and delivery.
Why do we need TRUSTEE
Digital technologies generate both challenges and opportunities. Thus, there is a need to assess how well they can be used to improve the accessibility and quality of multidisciplinary big-data sources from diverse sectors in a trustworthy, fair, responsible, and environmentally friendly manner across the data lifecycle.
