Mary Anne Smart, University of California San Diego, will present "Privacy Through Randomness". Pizza provided and everyone welcome to attend.
In this talk, she will offer an overview of differential privacy---an approach to data privacy that has been adopted by companies and government agencies such as Apple, Microsoft, and the US Census Bureau. She will explain the inherent tradeoff between privacy for individuals and accuracy of aggregate data analysis and how differential privacy handles that tradeoff. She will also discuss challenges in designing effective communication around differential privacy and explain how she has addressed these challenges in her own research.
