Task: Identify Application and Qualities of Hash Functions discussed in Cases

Teams should spend 10 minutes discussing and recalling the presentations from others and begin to identify at least TWO applications of hash functions that were common across many or all of the presentations. Learners should also consider in what ways the presentations diverge as well as novel or distinct insights that where presented by others.

After a brief break, teams will be advised to spend 10 minutes discussing and considering at least THREE desirable qualities (e.g. speed) that such hash functions should exhibit that would underpin the applications identified.

Teams will then be required to spend FIVE minutes on producing a single presentation slide that briefly documents the TWO applications and THREE desirable qualities.
