#124: If you are an application developer, more than likely you work with some sort of data set. But what do you do when you have sensitive data like credit card numbers, social security numbers or something as simple as a first and last name?

Enter Tonic.ai and their solution: de-identification of data. They take your sensitive data and de-identify it and then they give you a sanitized version of that same data that you can use to do your job without the risk of leaking the real data.

In today’s episode, we speak with Adam Kamor, a Co-founder and Head of Engineering of Tonic.ai, about their solution and approach to creating fake data.
