Abstract: Secure Multi-party Computation (MPC) is the standard-bearer and holy-grail problem in Cryptography that permits a collection of data-owners to compute a collaborative result, without any of them gaining any knowledge about the data provided by the other, except what is derivable from the result of the computation. This talk will discuss the fundamental concept of garbled circuits and the Yao’s two-party computation which is the first MPC construct in the literature. In the end, I will briefly touch upon how MPC meets ML
