Ethics is one of the strong values of Octopize - Mimethik Data.
Indeed, in a context where the use of personal data and the ethical issues surrounding them are growing exponentially, especially in Western countries, Octopize - Mimethik Data's technology wishes to highlight its ability to protect individuals' data. The company's approach is to solve the paradox between the protection of individuals' data (essential and legitimate) and the major stake that data sharing represents for the collective interest.
The avatars resulting from the solution ensure the respect of the private life of individuals and allow to answer this ethical imperative by facilitating the access to data for innovation, research, analysis...
Thus, when processing data or anonymizing a dataset, Octopize - Mimethik Data takes into account the context and its use to respect all the ethical issues of these treatments.
The security aspect is guaranteed by its unique and differentiating conceptual approach of patient centrism. This gives the avatars a proven level of security.
Through our method, each avatar is derived from a patient. Each patient is therefore the heart and the cause of a local mathematical model centered on his individual characteristics. This conceptual approach has allowed Octopize to develop unique and patented metrics to ensure the security of the method with respect to the 3 criteria described in the G29 opinion of 05/2014 namely, individualization, correlation and inference.
At Octopize - Mimethik Data, our motto is "sharing without revealing".
We seek to make individuals' personal data usable for secondary purposes, while guaranteeing the confidentiality of the individuals who provided the data.
Our method allows us to say:
- "let's keep personal data for personal uses,
- for all other uses (analysis, sharing...): use avatars".
The avatars keep the signal contained in the data allowing transparency and reproducibility of the results. Sharing avatars is possible since there is no longer any risk of re-identification.
Innovation is at the heart of Octopize's projects.
Our Avatar solution is a breakthrough innovation, the result of 5 years of research and development.
Avatarization facilitates data sharing and accelerates innovation (scientific and medical research, business value creation).
