Ryan McKenna is one of the winners of the first of three matches in the Differential Privacy Synthetic Data Challenge
The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Division is proud to announce the winners of the first of three matches in the Differential Privacy Synthetic Data Challenge. This initiative is the first of its kind in differential privacy and offers a unique opportunity to benchmark implemented systems against each other.
1st ($10,000) – Team JonathanPS
2nd ($7,000) – Team Ninghui
3rd ($5,000) – Team RMcKenna
4th ($2,000) – Team ManiSrivastava
5th ($1,000) – Team PrivBayes
The focus of this series of competitions is to identify, develop, and refine practical approaches for creating differentially private synthetic data sets. The competitions include empirical evaluation of privatized synthetic data generation on common analytics tasks such as clustering, classification, and regression.
