PRR Agenda Smart Retail (Smart Retail)

Type: National Project Project

Duration: from 2022 Oct 01 to 2024 Dec 31

Financed by: IAPMEI

Prime Contractor: Sensei (Company) - Portugal

The goal of this project is to develop advanced security and privacy-preserving technologies for smart-retail. In particular, the following solutions will be developed: (1) firmware for embedded devices capable of guaranteeing the authenticity of anonymized sensor readings and video feeds, (2) algorithms for the selective de-anonymization of customers' identities featuring cryptographically-protected video streams, (3) enclave-based infrastructure for protecting the confidentiality of proprietary ML models and software shipped with the appliances deployed in smart-retail stores and cabinets, (4) software systems with data-lineage tracing capabilities to give transparent, GDPR-compliant data processing guarantees, and (5) distributed computing infrastructure to provide a scalable and resource-efficient exchange of confidential and integrity-protected messages in the smart-retail stores' sensor networks.
