Querying information over TBs of data where no one can see what you query or the responses obtained? It sounds like science fiction, but it is actually the science of Private Information Retrieval (PIR). This talk will introduce Apache Pirk - a new incubating Apache project designed to provide a framework for scalable, distributed PIR. We will discuss the motivation for Apache Pirk, its distributed implementations in platforms such as Spark and Storm, itäó»s current algorithms, the power of homomorphic encryption, and take a look at the path forward.
