Abstract: Machine Learning (ML) technologies can create value, monetary of societal, from data. However, data collection presents privacy risks. In this talk we will discuss the different risks associated with data collected for ML purposes and present some of the technologies developed to mitigate these risks including differential privacy, Homomorphic Encryptions, Secure Multi-Party Computation, and Federated Learning.
