Description

In this week's episode, we chat with Nigel Smart, Professor of Cryptology at KU Leuven and the co-founder of Unbound Tech, about his background in cryptology, the history of MPC systems, MPC systems in the real world, and how MPC stacks up versus other related cryptography and privacy techniques.



He helps us better understand where MPC comes from, the power of this technology and shares some emerging MPC research topics that he is excited about.



Here are some of the papers or concepts mentioned in this episode:
