PrivBayes: Private Data release via Bayesian networks

no code implementations Proceedings of the 2014 ACM SIGMOD International Conference on Management of Data 2014 Jun Zhang, Graham Cormode, Cecilia M. Procopiuc, Divesh Srivastava, Xiaokui Xiao

Given a dataset D, PRIVBAYES first constructs a Bayesian network N , which (i) provides a succinct model of the correlations among the attributes in D and (ii) allows us to approximate the distribution of data in D using a set P of lowdimensional marginals of D. After that, PRIVBAYES injects noise into each marginal in P to ensure differential privacy, and then uses the noisy marginals and the Bayesian network to construct an approximation of the data distribution in D. Finally, PRIVBAYES samples tuples from the approximate distribution to construct a synthetic dataset, and then releases the synthetic data.
