NordSec 2017 Keynote:

Privacy in Machine Learning

Dr. Ilya Mironov, Google

Abstract: We survey progress in understanding of privacy in statistical databases, starting with early attacks, flawed definitions, and negative results leading up to emergence of the notion of differential privacy. In the second half of the talk we cover uses of differential privacy in the Chrome browser, and its recent applications in machine learning tasks such as text and image recognition.

Ilya Mironov is a Staff Research Scientist in Google Brain. After completing his PhD at Stanford in 2003, he joined Microsoft Research Silicon Valley, where he worked on cryptography, cryptanalysis, and privacy until 2014.
