Talk Title: Protecting Data Privacy in an Increasingly Connected World
Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things
Abstract: Ubiquitous sensing, wireless communication and distributed computation have transformed the way we interact with the physical world. While we celebrate the convenience and the improved quality of life having smart devices around us, the data collection practices have moved from remote fields to private living environments and work spaces; and data collected have also shifted from non-sensitive scientific data to personal, sensitive data that is closely related to the user's health conditions, emotional states, physical activities and social relationships. In this talk I will review some of our recent work on protecting privacy of sensitive data by minimalist-style sensing and targeted data perturbation, as well as fundamental challenges/impossibility results regarding data privacy and utility.
