Arjun Narayan, University of Pennsylvania, held at Villanova University
In this talk, I discuss the problem of answering queries about private data that is spread across multiple different databases. For instance, a medical researcher may want to study a possible correlation between travel patterns and certain types of illnesses. The necessary information exists today – e.g., in airline reservation systems and hospital records – but it is maintained by two separate companies who are prevented by law from sharing this information with each other, or with a third party.
I will introduce Differential Privacy, a theoretical framework for reasoning about the privacy guarantees we want to achieve, and present an algorithm and system for answering such queries in a distributed, differentially private setting.
