Title: "Decentralized Personal data: from scale to privacy."

Abstract: Decentralized systems have always attracted the attention of research and industry thanks to their promise for unlimited scalability. But with the advent of Big Data applications, they also present an obvious opportunity to avoid the centralization of personal data in the servers of a small number of online players. In this talk, I will review the major work in this direction, present two contributions in the context of privacy-preserving decentralized recommendation systems, and conclude by outlining our current efforts in the context of decentralized data analytics.

Bio: Davide Frey has been a researcher in the ASAP team at Inria Rennes Bretagne-Atlantique since 2010. He received his PhD from Politecnico di Milano in Italy in 2006; he then worked as a post-doctoral researcher both at Washington University in St. Louis (MO), and at Inria Rennes before being recruited as a permanent researcher in 2010. His research interests focus on the systemic aspects of large-scale distributed systems and more recently he has been investigating how decentralization can improve the management and analysis of large quantities of privacy-sensitive data. His contributions span diverse areas such as video streaming, recommendation systems, privacy, and social networks. In these topics, he has co-supervised 4 PhD students and has been active in several national and International projects.
