Masterclass: When big data meets AI 

With the surge of big data collected from billions of devices, data analytics techniques provide the potential to reveal new insights and in doing so transform business and society. Despite the opportunities presented by big data and data analytics, organizations must also be aware of information abuse risk.

In this masterclass, Associate Professor Gang Li will introduce several scenarios where personal privacy can be compromised during the data release, analyse the procedure, and then review the scope of differential privacy.
