Title: “Privacy in the Land of Plenty”

Host: Joan Feigenbaum

Abstract: Privacy-preserving data analysis has a large literature that spans several disciplines.  ”Differential privacy” – a notion tailored to situations in which data are plentiful – has provided a theoretically sound and powerful framework and given rise to an explosion of research.  We will review the definition of differential privacy, describe some algorithmic contributions, and conclude with a surprising application.
