Who is this presentation for?

  • Data scientists, C-level technical leaders, and product managers

Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic understanding of how deep learning models work and why data privacy is an important issue

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to address the future phase of machine learning development under data privacy constraints


In recent years, we have seen tremendous improvements in artificial intelligence. The major breakthroughs are due to the advances of neural-based models. However, recently, the more popular these algorithms and techniques get, the more serious the consequences of data and user privacy. These issues will drastically impact the future of AI research—specifically how neural-based models are developed, deployed, and evaluated.

Yishay Carmiel shares techniques and explains how data privacy will impact machine learning development and how future training and inference will be affected. Yishay first dives into training on private data, covering why training on private data should be addressed, federated learning, and differential privacy. He then explores inference on private data, discussing why inference on private data should be addressed, homomorphic encryption and neural networks, polynomial approximation of neural networks, protecting data in neural networks, data reconstruction from neural networks, and methods and techniques to secure data reconstruction from neural networks.
