Privacy & Small Devices
Description: Small devices are ubiquitous including smartphones and wearable technology. This has resulted in a wealth of data about individuals and populations, which can be analyzed for useful information to enhance our life. However, this data can disclose sensitive information about people. This project studies how to design systems for small devices to generate useful data while ensuring strong privacy protection.
