The Oxford Internet Institute is excited to welcome Hamed Haddadi from Imperial College London for the Colloquia talk "Personal data ecosystem: privacy, utility, and efficiency challenges". The event is followed by a short drinks reception.
About the Talk
We are living in an increasingly complex ecosystem of behavioural profiling and personal data analytics. In this talk, I present our ongoing work on utilising edge-computing to improve the scalability and privacy of user-centred analytics in the context of personal data. I present an ecosystem where devices and resources centred around the user, collectively referred to as the edge, can complement the cloud for providing privacy-aware, yet accurate and efficient analytics.
I then present the evaluations of the proposed framework for applying privacy-preserving deep learning techniques on a number of exemplar applications, and discuss the broader implications of such approaches for future systems such as the Databox platform. The hashtag to use for tweeting about this event is #oiicolloquia

His research interest are in User-Centered Systems, IoT, Applied Machine Learning, Privacy, and Human-Data Interaction.
About the Series
The word Colloquia (sing.: Colloquium) comes from the Latin word “Colloquy” meaning “Conversation”. Today, we often use the term to describe departmental seminars with a general topic and audience. The OII Colloquia, however, come closer to the original sense of the word: through this series of events we aim to initiate conversations and strengthen our ties with scholars at other departments of the University of Oxford, around topics of shared interest.
They should be considered as a trigger for long-lasting collaborations between the OII and the speakers’ own departments.
TOC are held twice a term (weeks 2 and 7) on Thursdays from 17:15 to 18:45 in an interactive and stimulating environment at the Oxford Internet Institute, 1 St Giles OX1 3JS open to the public (upon registration).
