For our last post of 2020, we wanted to share a more personal note with our readers to talk about how grateful for the resiliency and flexibility our team has shown during this challenging year.

Let’s TAC™ About It: The Value of TAC™

In this post, we cover the three big benefits when choosing TAC™ over the "next best alternative".

Let’s TAC™ About It: TAC™: So, what’s it good for?

VIA has announced nine new features on TAC™ in the past 14 weeks. How are utilities using them? For starters, they are increasing clean energy adoption.

TAC™ White Paper Release: Balancing Data Owner Protection and Analyst Flexibility

VIA has released a new 10-page white paper that provides a comprehensive overview and code examples of TAC™’s current data privacy and security features.

Reversing the Curse: The 80 / 20 Split In AI Projects

Most AI projects spend 80% of time cleaning data and only 20% analyzing it. VIA has been investing heavily in using our own AI and software development skills to reverse this ratio.

Let’s TAC™ About It: Verified Templates: Balancing Security and Flexibility

For the tenth installment of the series, we will discuss how TAC™ contracts can control what kinds of queries an authorized analyst can ask of the data.

Let’s TAC™ About It: What's a Smart Contract?

For the ninth installment of the series, we will discuss how TAC™ uses smart contracts to govern data and analysis workflows.

Meet the Team: Natalie Winger, Data Specialist

Let’s TAC™ About It: Ease of Use Upgrade

The latest release of VIA’s TAC™ platform is a leap forward in terms of simplicity and ease of use for users performing analysis on private data.

How VIA TAC™-kles Sensor Data

Many utilities are concerned about the responsibility that comes with sensor datasets. As a result, the data gets trapped. VIA’s software platform, TAC™ was designed to address these issues in power sector data.

Let’s TAC™ About It: Homomorphic Encryption Algorithms on TAC™ (HEAT)

VIA has implemented homomorphic encryption (HE), which is cryptography that holds the promise of allowing computations on data while it remains encrypted.

Let’s TAC™ About It: K-Anonymity

VIA has implemented a k-anonymity function to help utilities meet requirements of regulators including releasing data for clean energy initiatives and mandating increased information privacy and security requirements.

Let’s TAC™ About It: Digital Watermarking

Watermarking is a simple and automatic method to provide auditability to data.

Introducing SWEET: AI for Data Wrangling

SWEET stands for Smart Wrangling Engine for Extraction and Transformation. SWEET, a built-in function on VIA's TAC™ platform, uses AI to wrangle data.
