    When my entire team transitioned to working from home for the first time, we were able to figure out most things — like how to hold virtual meetings and get people the technical resources they needed — fairly quickly. But one thing was more difficult: maintaining access to data. For privacy reasons, much of the data we use lives in a secure machine. We can’t put it on the cloud or distribute it publicly. What happens if this machine crashes, and we’re not on campus to fix it? Although this particular situation is unique, it highlights something we’ve been thinking about for years: the importance of synthetic data. Synthetic data is generated from a statistical model in such a way as to emulate important properties of the real data. Over the past 5 years, our group has been working on creating synthetic data generators. In this webinar, we will present our current progress in this regard, explore some use cases in which synthetic data is helpful, and explain how you can use synthetic data to scale your digital operations.
