Per-instance Differential Privacy [article]

Yu-Xiang Wang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We consider a refinement of differential privacy --- per instance differential privacy (pDP), which captures the privacy of a specific individual with respect to a fixed data set.  ...  The result reveals an interesting and intuitive fact that an individual has stronger privacy if he/she has small "leverage score" with respect to the data set and if he/she can be predicted more accurately  ...  We also thank the editor and anonymous reviewers for their helpful feedbacks that lead to significant improvements of the paper.  ...
