Privacy-preserving analytics in the cloud

Jon CROWCROFT

This talk is about experience implementing machine learning in a fully decentralized way on low cost home devices, which can potentially lead to large improvements in privacy. The two-sided market of Cloud Analytics emerged almost accidentally, initially from click-through associated with users’ response to search results, and then adopted by many other services, whether web mail or social media. The business model seen by the user is of a free service (storage and tools for photos, video, social media etc). The value to the provider is untrammeled access to the users' data over space and time, allowing upfront income from the ability to run recommenders and targeted adverts, to background market research about who is interested in what information, goods and services, when and where. The value to the user is increased personalisation. This all comes at a cost, both of privacy (and the risk of loss of reputation or even money) for the user, and at the price of running highly expensive data centers for the providers, and increased cost in bandwidth and energy consumption (mobile network costs & device battery life). The attack surface of our lives expands to cover just about everything.

This talk will examine several alternative directions that this will evolve in the future.

State of the Art Media Research

George WRIGHT

AV material (video, audio, text, images) forms the backbone of the BBC’s current output, recent storage and historical archives. Our R&D teams work across a number of different domains. One specific problem space involves dealing with huge amounts of data split across sites, spanning many broadcast channels and formats. Our research helps the BBC create, capture, store, and analyse multimedia content.

Reproducible Research: Where do we stand ?

Arnaud LEGRAND

Reproducibility of experiments and analysis by others is one of the pillars of modern science. Yet, the description of experimental protocols, software, and analysis is often lacunar and rarely allows a third party to reproduce a study.
