Privacy is increasingly important to society and coming under more scrutiny. Modern machine learning methods consume vast amounts of data, and it is well known that many large networks memorise their training data. It is necessary to move beyond ineffective heuristics such as anonymisation or selective withholding of data. Differential privacy provides a framework for quantifying loss of privacy and designing algorithms which keep reasonable worst case privacy loss within acceptable levels. In this talk, we will motivate and introduce foundational differential privacy methods, and look at applications to machine learning.
