Chiaroscuro (2015 -)
Chiaroscuro is a complete solution for clustering personal data with strong privacy guarantees. The execution sequence produced by Chiaroscuro is massively distributed on personal devices, coping with arbitrary connections and disconnections. Chiaroscuro builds on our novel data structure, called Diptych, which allows the participating devices to collaborate privately by combining encryption with differential privacy. Our solution yields a high clustering quality while minimizing the impact of the differentially private perturbation.
Time series indexing is at the center of many scientific works or business needs. The number and size of the series may well explode depending on the concerned domain. These data are still very difficult to handle and, often, a necessary step to handling them is in their indexing. Imitates is a Spark Machine Learning Library that implements two algorithms developped by Zenith. Both algorithms allow indexing massive amounts of time series (billions of series, several terabytes of data). A demo is available here.
