Google publishes research paper on differential privacy

13/02/2024 | Google

Google Research has published a blog post that discusses its new open-source library designed for auditing differential privacy (DP). The post highlights that while DP is an effective tool for safeguarding data, implementing its mechanisms can be a complex process. This can lead to errors that are difficult to detect through traditional unit testing methods. The blog suggests that a unified testing framework would be beneficial for regulators, auditors, and academics, as it would help to ensure that privacy mechanisms are functioning as intended. The post concludes that DP is an essential framework for data protection and that the new open-source library will help to make it more accessible and easier to use.
