ABSTRACT

In 1997 Latanya Sweeney identified the patient records of the governor of Massachusetts by combining “anonymized” patient records with data from other public sources. More recently, researchers in Australia found that medical records of 2.5 million Australians are re-identifiable in an “anonymized” public health data set. This talk discusses how clever use of algorithms and probability theory can allow us to avoid such situations, guaranteeing privacy *and* allowing us to analyze sensitive data.
