Discussion with Dr. Khaled El Emam on synthetic data

April 28, 2022 - Ron Kruzeniski, Information and Privacy Commissioner

Dr. El Emam and others have just completed a report on “Pan-Canadian Descriptive Study of Privacy Risks from Synthetic Data Generation Practices within the Evolving Canadian Legislative Landscape.” The report was completed in March of 2022 and submitted to the Federal Privacy Commissioner. Dr. El Emam is an expert in the area of synthetic data. He talks about the conclusions in the report and suggests that the time for studying synthetic data is over and it is now time for innovation in Canada.

The report will be available on the Federal Privacy Commissioner’s website soon. Keep checking.
