    Talk Title: Differential Privacy: From Principled Foundations to Your Browser

    Series: Probability and Statistics Seminar

    Abstract: We survey progress in understanding of privacy in statistical databases over the last 10+ years, starting with early negative results followed by emergence of the notion of differential privacy and its variants. 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.
