Enhancing data analytics with machine learning and AI


How are some of the world's largest data analytics providers utilising machine learning to enhance their offerings? Recent research has shown that companies which use analytics for decision making are 6% more profitable than those that don't. Harnessing analytics within business operations can benefit companies in a number of ways, including the capacity to be proactive and anticipate needs, mitigate risks, increase product quality and personalisation and optimise the customer experience. As a result of these benefits, the technology industry has seen giants such as Microsoft, Amazon and IBM ramp up their investments in Big Data with the sector expected to reach over US$273mn in value by 2023. What is machine learning and how can it be applied to data analytics?

A Review of Privacy Preserving Federated Learning for Private IoT Analytics Machine Learning

The Internet-of-Things generates vast quantities of data, much of it attributable to an individual's activity and behaviour. Holding and processing such personal data in a central location presents a significant privacy risk to individuals (of being identified or of their sensitive data being leaked). However, analytics based on machine learning and in particular deep learning benefit greatly from large amounts of data to develop high performance predictive models. Traditionally, data and models are stored and processed in a data centre environment where models are trained in a single location. This work reviews research around an alternative approach to machine learning known as federated learning which seeks to train machine learning models in a distributed fashion on devices in the user's domain, rather than by a centralised entity. Furthermore, we review additional privacy preserving methods applied to federated learning used to protect individuals from being identified during training and once a model is trained. Throughout this review, we identify the strengths and weaknesses of different methods applied to federated learning and finally, we outline future directions for privacy preserving federated learning research, particularly focusing on Internet-of-Things applications.

Delay-Adaptive Learning in Generalized Linear Contextual Bandits Machine Learning

The growing availability of user-specific data has welcomed the exciting era of personalized recommendation, a paradigm that uncovers the heterogeneity across individuals and provides tailored service decisions that lead to improved outcomes. Such heterogeneity is ubiquitous across a variety of application domains (including online advertising, medical treatment assignment, product/news recommendation ([29], [9],[11],[7],[42])) and manifests itself as different individuals responding differently to the recommended items. Rising to this opportunity, contextual bandits ([8, 39, 22, 1, 3]) have emerged to be the predominant mathematical formalism that provides an elegant and powerful formulation: its three core components, the features (representing individual characteristics), the actions (representing the recommendation), and the rewards (representing the observed feedback), capture the salient aspects of the problem and provide fertile ground for developing algorithms that balance exploring and exploiting users' heterogeneity. As such, the last decade has witnessed extensive research efforts in developing effective and efficient contextual bandits algorithms. In particular, two types of algorithms-upper confidence bounds (UCB) based algorithms ([29, 20, 15, 26, 30]) and Thompson sampling (TS) based algorithms ([4, 5, 40, 41, 2])-stand out from this flourishing and fruitful line of work: their theoretical guarantees have been analyzed in many settings, often yielding (near-)optimal regret bounds; their empirical performance have been thoroughly validated, often providing insights into their practical efficacy (including the consensus that TS based algorithms, although sometimes suffering from intensive computation for posterior updates, are generally more effective than their UCB counterparts, whose performance can be sensitive to hyper-parameter tuning). To a large extent, these two family of algorithms have been widely deployed in many modern recommendation engines.

Practical Privacy Preserving POI Recommendation Machine Learning

Point-of-Interest (POI) recommendation has been extensively studied and successfully applied in industry recently. However, most existing approaches build centralized models on the basis of collecting users' data. Both private data and models are held by the recommender, which causes serious privacy concerns. In this paper, we propose a novel Privacy preserving POI Recommendation (PriRec) framework. First, to protect data privacy, users' private data (features and actions) are kept on their own side, e.g., Cellphone or Pad. Meanwhile, the public data need to be accessed by all the users are kept by the recommender to reduce the storage costs of users' devices. Those public data include: (1) static data only related to the status of POI, such as POI categories, and (2) dynamic data depend on user-POI actions such as visited counts. The dynamic data could be sensitive, and we develop local differential privacy techniques to release such data to public with privacy guarantees. Second, PriRec follows the representations of Factorization Machine (FM) that consists of linear model and the feature interaction model. To protect the model privacy, the linear models are saved on users' side, and we propose a secure decentralized gradient descent protocol for users to learn it collaboratively. The feature interaction model is kept by the recommender since there is no privacy risk, and we adopt secure aggregation strategy in federated learning paradigm to learn it. To this end, PriRec keeps users' private raw data and models in users' own hands, and protects user privacy to a large extent. We apply PriRec in real-world datasets, and comprehensive experiments demonstrate that, compared with FM, PriRec achieves comparable or even better recommendation accuracy.
