Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 271,913 views on Tuesday, 26 March 2019 our article of the day is Differential privacy.
Differential privacy is a statistical technique that aims to provide means to maximize the accuracy of queries from statistical databases while measuring (and, thereby, hopefully minimizing) the privacy impact on individuals whose information is in the database. Differential privacy was developed by cryptographers and is thus often associated with cryptography, and it draws much of its language from cryptography. Although differential privacy is often discussed in the context of identifying individuals whose information may be in a database, identification and reidentification attacks are not included within the original differential privacy framework.
