A Novel Data Obfuscation Method to Share Nuclear Data for Machine Learning Application, INL/RPT-22-6987126963702 Data Architecture & Analytics​​The nuclear power industry is data-rich and these data introduce a tremendous potential for automation and cost savings. On the other hand, research organizations, among other stakeholders, have very capable methods and solutions often developed using simulated or synthetic data due to the lack of real data. One cause of this disconnect is data privacy. Data privacy is of paramount importance in all industries, but especially the nuclear industry. This challenge motivated the data obfuscation method called deceptive infusion of data (DIOD). 11/15/2022 3:18:42 PMU.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy This information was prepared as an account of work sponsored by an agency of the U.S. Government One cause of this disconnect is 146https://lwrs.inl.gov/Advanced IIC System Technologies/Forms/AllItems.aspxpdfFalsepdf2022-11-14T07:00:00Z
