Sometimes we take a break from building cutting edge AI redaction models to stretch our academic muscles and write about privacy and machine learning. Check back here regularly for our musings.
The new Tensorflow Lite XNNPACK delegate enables best in-class performance on x86 and ARM CPUs — over 10x faster than the default Tensorflow Lite backend in some cases.
Some techniques to improve DALI resource usage & create a completely CPU-based pipeline.
We introduce the four pillars required to achieve perfectly privacy-preserving AI and discuss various technologies that can help address each of the pillars.
We discuss a practical application of homomorphic encryption to privacy-preserving signal processing, particularly focusing on the Fourier transform.
We cover the basics of homomorphic encryption, followed by a brief overview of open source HE libraries and a tutorial on how to use one of those libraries (namely, PALISADE).
A number of people ask us why we should bother creating NLP tools that preserve privacy. Apparently not everyone spends hours thinking about data breaches and privacy infringements.
A very brief overview of privacy-preserving technologies follows for anyone who’s interested in starting out in this area. I cover symmetric encryption, asymmetric encryption, homomorphic encryption, differential privacy, and secure multi-party computation.
