Google Releases Internal Video-Blurring Privacy Tool as Open Source

Google has noted that privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) are starting to become more widely used, after previously being mostly used in academic settings. The White House has recently expressed support for PETs, stating that they “will allow researchers, physicians, and others permitted access to gain insights from sensitive data without ever having access to the data itself.” Both the US and UK governments have held contests this year to develop PET solutions for addressing financial crime and public health emergencies.
