Look at your smartphone. Do you think that the company that manufactured it is collecting information about you? Do you care? Data driven systems are guiding decisions in many areas of society, and the way in which this is happening is increasingly complex. As a result, we are constantly confronting the need to balance the benefits of these systems with the various negative consequences that can come along with those, and in particular, with privacy issues. In the field of data privacy we study the possible ways for organizations to collect and analyze statistical data on individuals in a way that does not compromise their privacy.
