The first use case that is currently live and open for use is the KnowledgeX Data Science Freelance Marketplace
. Currently, there is a worldwide shortage of data scientists. In 2020, over 250k in-house data science positions could not be filled. Data scientists are usually highly skilled experts. In such a case, other industries have embraced gig-based freelance work. Platforms like Upwork, Fiver, or Comatch enable experts and clients to match, agree on terms, and work. However, for data science, a freelancer spot market has never evolved. The reason why this never happened is simple: companies do not trust externals with their valuable data. The KnowledgeX Data Science Marketplace enables freelancers to build models on data while they do not have controlling access to it and only see an anonymized sample of the actual data set. Our confidential computing paradigm enables freelancers to work without seeing the full data set.
