Abstract: Due to a variety of reasons including privacy, scalability, bandwidth restrictions and robustness, data is often aggregated or obfuscated in various ways before being released to the public. Is it possible to learn predictive models on aggregated data that can even come close in the predictive performance or parameter recovery possible if the full-resolution (non-aggregated) data were available? This is a challenging problem that requires significant algorithmic innovation since simple ways of imputing the missing data and then learning a model can fail dramatically. In this talk I will present new approaches that are actually able to obtain reasonable results from aggregated data in certain scenarios.
Bio: rofessor Joydeep Ghosh is currently the Schlumberger Centennial Chaired Professor at UT Austin. He has worked on a wide variety of data mining and machine learning problems, resulting in 400+ refereed publications (including 90+ full length archival journal papers), several successful industrial projects and 16 best paper awards. Service to the community includes chairing top data mining conferences (KDD'11, SDM'12, SDM'13 etc), giving keynote talks (ICHI'15, ICDM'13, MCS, ANNIE etc), and consulting with a wide range of companies, from startups to large corporations such as IBM. He is currently Chief Scientist of CognitiveScale, which was selected by the World Economic Forum in 2018 as one of the 100 emerging companies worldwide most likely to benefit humanity.
