New Models for Privacy Protection

Principal Investigator: Alex "Sandy" Pentland
Collaborator: Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye

Professor Pentland’s research group has pioneered the use of large-scale behavior datasets in research and for commercial purposes. This research has significant implications for ongoing debates, within the United States and the European Union, on how to allow innovation while also protecting individual privacy. The IPL is assisting Professor Pentland to translate and disseminate his research to relevant policy communities in the U.S. and Europe.
