Monika Henzinger - "How Can Algorithms Help in Protecting our Privacy"

Decisions are increasingly automated using rules that were learnt from personal data. Thus, it is important to guarantee that the privacy of the data is protected during the learning process. To formalize the notion of an algorithm that protects the privacy of its data, differential privacy was introduced by Dwork, McSherry, Nissim, and Dwork in 2006. It is a rigorous mathematical definition to analyze the privacy properties of an algorithm – or the lack thereof. In this talk I will give an introduction to differential privacy with an emphasis on differential private algorithms that can handle dynamically changing input data.


The talk will take place on Tuesday March 12, at 12:00pm CET in Room 201 (Palazzina D, Viale Regina Elena 295).
Attendance is mandatory for PhD students.
