2009-ST-061-CCI002-07: Center of Excellence for Command, Control, and Interoperability

The project is:

Differentially Private Anomaly Detection July 1, 2015 — June 30, 2016
$125,000

The goal is to develop algorithms for screening and anomaly detection in private data using a combination of techniques from group testing, active learning, and sequential hypothesis testing. The objective is to evaluate how well and in what contexts differentially private algorithms can reliably detect anomalies while preserving the privacy non-anomalous data/individuals.
