Neural nets trained on sensitive data, like medical data or social security numbers, can “accidentally” memorize it, leaving it vulnerable to hackers.
“We hope to raise awareness that it’s important to consider protecting users’ sensitive data as machine learning models are trained. Machine learning or deep learning models could be remembering sensitive data if no special care is taken.”
We mentioned in the previous section that in the last few years, there have been many attempts at a fresh approach to statistical time-series forecasting using methods like neural networks and Deep Learning.
Machine Learning and Deep Learning are subsets of Artificial intelligence, as discussed here. Deep learning excels at identifying patterns in unstructured data, which most people know as media such as images, sound, video and text.
