Sprint #2 just started!
In this sprint we're working with multiple years of American Community Survey data. Come check it out, and maybe try your hand!
There's no requirement to have participated in previous sprints to join in this one. A kick-off webinar will happen tomorrow, Thursday 1/14/21, at 12:30p ET
, and you can register here
. (The recording will also be available afterwards).
Finally, producing the privacy-preserving data isn't the only open research problem to address, there's also the question of how we decide utility. We just concluded our sister challenge focused on designing utility metrics, "A Better Meterstick for Differential Privacy
", and the submissions are now available for public voting
. There's some very interesting ideas here, and we'll be considering these in our scoring design for Sprint #3 of the DP challenge. Come take a look yourself and cast a vote for your favorite!
Thank you all for joining us on this adventure--we've got further interesting things ahead of us. I'll report back again when it's time to kick-off Sprint #3, but I hope you'll consider hopping over to the DrivenData site
and following along with us there for Sprint #2.
