How can we enable privacy in an age of big data analytics?

Even though some seem to think privacy is dead, we are all still wearing clothes, as Bruce Schneier observed at a recent conference on surveillance. Yet big data and big data analytics are leaving some of us feeling a bit more naked than before. This talk will provide some personal observations on privacy today and then outline some research areas where progress is needed to enable society to gain the benefits of analyzing large datasets without giving up more privacy than necessary. Discussion will be invited.
