An Overview of Privacy in Machine Learning

Over the past few years, providers such as Google, Microsoft, and Amazon have started to provide customers with access to software interfaces allowing them to easily embed machine learning tasks into their applications.

Naturally, this approach can also be used (and is often advocated) in other contexts, including government collaborations, citizen science projects, and business-to-business partnerships. However, if malicious users were able to recover data used to train these models, the resulting information leakage would create serious issues.
