Privacy Preserving Machine Learning and Analytics
One of the key challenges in deploying machine learning (ML) at scale is how to help data owners learn from their data while protecting their privacy. This issue has become more pressing with the advent of regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation. It might seem as though "privacy-preserving machine learning" would be a self-contradiction: ML wants data, while privacy hides data. Researchers from academia and industry have been marrying ideas from cryptography and machine learning to provide the seemingly paradoxical ability to learn from data without seeing it, and to learn aggregate properties of populations without learning about any particular individual. In this talk we will review three privacy-preserving ML techniques--homomorphic encryption, multi-party computation, and differential privacy--and review the recent rapid progress that has been made in all three as they transition from research topics into production tools for data scientists working with sensitive data.
