In this episode of the Georgian Impact Podcast, Jon Prial talks with Jeff Jonas, CEO of Senzing. Jeff has worked in the area of entity resolution for almost 35 years. Over that time he’s worked with casinos, government agencies, and enterprises.

  • How it can be used to detect financial and voter fraud and identify terrorists
  • Why privacy by design is core to Senzing’s thinking
