Zero-Data Exchange for Engineering
There is a high need to process privacy and intellectual property-related digital artefacts, such as data sets, models, or algorithms. The vision of ZEE is that for processing these artefacts no copies must be created. Technical issues of security and privacy can be addressed with novel approaches. However, current IT infrastructures represent major barriers. Much sought-after applications like controlled data sharing, distributed computing, or distributed tool chains are effectively prevented. The ZEE project aims to exploit edge/network/cloud computing-based mechanisms to circumvent these issues, to enable new business opportunities through a more generous attitude towards sharing in industry.
