Privacy preserving data visualizations

Demetris Avraam, Rebecca Wilson, Oliver Butters, Thomas Burton, Christos Nicolaides, Elinor Jones, Andy Boyd, Paul Burton
2021 EPJ Data Science  
AbstractData visualizations are a valuable tool used during both statistical analysis and the interpretation of results as they graphically reveal useful information about the structure, properties and relationships between variables, which may otherwise be concealed in tabulated data. In disciplines like medicine and the social sciences, where collected data include sensitive information about study participants, the sharing and publication of individual-level records is controlled by data
more » ... ection laws and ethico-legal norms. Thus, as data visualizations – such as graphs and plots – may be linked to other released information and used to identify study participants and their personal attributes, their creation is often prohibited by the terms of data use. These restrictions are enforced to reduce the risk of breaching data subject confidentiality, however they limit analysts from displaying useful descriptive plots for their research features and findings.Here we propose the use of anonymization techniques to generate privacy-preserving visualizations that retain the statistical properties of the underlying data while still adhering to strict data disclosure rules. We demonstrate the use of (i) the well-known k-anonymization process which preserves privacy by reducing the granularity of the data using suppression and generalization, (ii) a novel deterministic approach that replaces individual-level observations with the centroids of each k nearest neighbours, and (iii) a probabilistic procedure that perturbs individual attributes with the addition of random stochastic noise. We apply the proposed methods to generate privacy-preserving data visualizations for exploratory data analysis and inferential regression plot diagnostics, and we discuss their strengths and limitations.

Gluon sivers and experimental considerations for TMDs [article]

Thomas Burton
2012 arXiv   pre-print
The study and characterisation of transverse-momentum-dependent distribution functions (TMDs) is a major goal of the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) physics programme. The study of gluon TMDs poses a greater challenge than for quark TMDs in DIS measurements, as gluons do not directly couple to photons. The study of D meson pairs has been proposed to provide access to gluon TMDs, but is demanding due to the rarity of D production. Here, we discuss the feasibility of such a measurement, and touch

Orientation Estimation using Wireless Device Radiation Patterns [article]

Thomas Burton, Kasper Rasmussen
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Wireless devices inherently have a non-uniform distribution of energy from their antenna or antennas. The shape that this forms is commonly called a radiation pattern or antenna pattern. We demonstrate that orientation can be estimated without the cooperation of the target device despite only having a small number of RSS measurements per packet. We do this by applying bounds to the amount of rotation in the time interval between packets. Using simulations, we show that this method can achieve a

This paper focuses on consumer wireless devices where patterns are not deliberately highly directional and scenarios that cannot rely on contrived movement patterns of the entities involved, which is unrealistic or impractical in many settings. Our work concentrates on existing wireless systems and infrastructure common in domestic, office, and commercial.

Privacy protected graphical functionality in DataSHIELD

Demetris Avraam, Amadou Gaye, Julia Isaeva, Thomas Burton, Rebecca Wilson, Andrew Turner, Paul Burton
2017 International Journal of Population Data Science  
ObjectivesIn several disciplines such as in biomedicine and social sciences the analysis of individual-level data or the co-analysis of data from different studies requires the pooling and the sharing of those data. However, sharing and combining sensitive individual-level data is often prohibited by ethico-legal constraints and other barriers such as the control maintenance and the huge sample sizes. The graphical illustration of microdata is also often forbidden as can potentially be

For example the plot of a standard scatterplot is disclosive as can explicitly specify the exact values of two measurements for each single individual. ApproachDataSHIELD (www.datashield.ac.uk) is a novel approach that allows the analysis of sensitive individual-level data and the co-analysis of such data from several studies simultaneously without physically pooling the data. ResultsDataSHIELD functionality consists of several functions that provide the flexibility of performing data analysis through different statistical techniques. A part of this environment includes a number of graphical-related functions for the graphical illustration of the statistical properties and relationships between different variables. We overview the graphical functions in DataSHIELD (ds.histogram, ds.heatmapPlot, ds.contourPlot) and demonstrate a number of new functions including ds.scatterPlot and ds.boxPlot developed based on the application of different computational approaches like the k-Nearest Neighbours algorithm and ensuring privacy protected analysis. ConclusionDataSHIELD graphical functionality has certain methodological features for the representation of the relationships between different variables preserving their statistical properties and assuring the data privacy protection. These graphical approaches can be used or enhanced for application in various areas where confidentiality and information sensitivity is considered, for example in longitudinal data and survival analysis, in epidemiological studies, in geospatial analysis and several others.

Reissner-Nordström perturbation framework with gravitational wave applications [article]

Justin Y. J. Burton, Thomas Osburn
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We present a new convenient framework for modeling Reissner-Nordstr\"om black hole perturbations from charged distributions of matter. Using this framework, we quantify how gravitational wave observations of compact binary systems would be affected if one or both components were charged. Our approach streamlines the (linearized) Einstein-Maxwell equations through convenient master functions that we designed to ameliorate certain disadvantages of prior strategies. By solving our improved master

Through adiabatic and quasicircular approximations, we apply our dissipative calculations to determine trajectories for intermediate and extreme mass-ratio inspirals. By comparing trajectories and waveforms with varied charges to those with neutral components, we explore the potential effect of electric charge on gravitational wave signals. We observe that the case of opposite charge-to-mass ratios has the most dramatic impact. Our findings are largely interpreted through the lens of the upcoming LISA mission.

The eRHIC Project

Thomas Burton, Larissa Bravina, Yiota Foka, Sonia Kabana
2014 EPJ Web of Conferences  
The eRHIC project plans to expand Brookhaven National Laboratory's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) with a high-intensity electron beam. Building on the exciting discoveries of RHIC, CERN, HERA and others, eRHIC will break new ground in collider luminosity and will push the frontiers of knowledge in nucleon and nuclear structure and in spin physics. The varied eRHIC physics programme and the proposed machine design will be presented and discussed.
