Privacy-preserving machine learning in data-sharing processes is an ever-critical task that enables collaborative training of Machine Learning (ML) models without the need to share the original data sources. It is especially relevant when an organization must assure that sensitive data remains private throughout the whole ML pipeline, i.e., training and inference phases. This paper presents an innovative framework that uses Representation Learning via autoencoders to generate privacy-preserving embedded data. Thus, organizations can share the data representation to increase machine learning models' performance in scenarios with more than one data source for a shared predictive downstream task.
