DMIN'11 Invited Lecture: Dr. Peter Geczy

Last modified 2011-06-18 12:35

Data Mining and Privacy: Water and Fire?
Dr. Peter Geczy
National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)

Date: July 19, 2011
Time: 01:20 - 02:20pm
Location: Ballroom 1


    Data mining research and practice have been experiencing an extraordinary growth over the past decade‒so have privacy concerns. Progress in data mining has been pushing the envelope of reachable depth, information and knowledge extracted from vast amounts of data‒increasingly exposing your innermost characteristics, behaviors and habits. Advanced data mining techniques and analytics have been significantly benefiting organizations in both commercial and noncommercial sectors‒yet providing an unprecedented potential for abuse. Is the interplay of data mining and privacy a conflict in making? This pertinent matter has been approached variously. Privacy preserving data mining has been tackling the issue from algorithmic and technology angles. Laws and regulations enacted by countries have been addressing the issue from legislative angles. Best practices and conducts instituted by commercial and international bodies have been exploring self-regulatory angles. Bridging data mining and privacy requires interdisciplinary endeavor. We will concisely survey the status quo and highlight selected promising directions.


    Dr. Peter Geczy is a chief scientist at The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). He also held positions at The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) and The Research Center for Future Technologies. His interdisciplinary scientific interests encompass domains of data and web mining, human interactions and behavior, social intelligence technologies, privacy, information systems, knowledge management and engineering, artificial intelligence, and adaptable systems. His recent research focus also extends to the spheres of service science, engineering, management, and computing. He received several awards in recognition of his accomplishments. Dr. Geczy has been serving on various professional boards and committees, and has been a distinguished speaker in academia and industry.
