Sharing aggregate statistics of private data can be of great value when data mining can be performed in real-time to understand important phenomena such as influenza outbreaks or traffic congestion. However, to this date there have been no tools for releasing real-time aggregated data with differential privacy, a strong and provable privacy guarantee. The authors propose FAST, a real-time system that allows differentially private aggregate sharing and time-series analytics. FAST employs a set of novel, adaptive strategies to improve the utility of shared/released data while guaranteeing the user-specified level of differential privacy.
