In our Big Data era, as data-driven decision making sweeps through all
aspects of society, the demands to make useful data available are growing
ever louder.   For example, the ubiquity of GPS-enabled devices has
resulted in a wealth of data about the movements of individuals and
populations, which can be analyzed for useful information to aid in city and
traffic planning, disaster preparedness, and so on.  But the problem of
releasing such data without disclosing confidential information, such as the
places people visit, is a subtle and difficult one.  Is “private data
release” an oxymoron?   This talk will delve into the motivations of
private data release, explore the challenges, and outline some of the
historical and recent approaches developed in response to this confounding
problem.
