I am working on a project in biostatistics involving some private companies.
Specifically, these companies share data about their customers with us and we try to apply our algorithm to this data. The good part is that both the algorithm and the application are very new, and seem to work quite well. Unfortunately we can not publish this data in paper or conferences, as it is privately owned.
- What is the typical way to proceed in this case?
- Does the fact that it is not possible to publish the data implies in general that also results based on this data are also unpublishable?
