This shift is due in part to the new working environment and product demands …

Public Health England has admitted that 16,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in the UK were missed from daily figures being reported between September 25 and October 2. The missing figures were subsequently added to the daily totals, but given the importance of these numbers for monitoring the outbreak and making key decisions, the results of the …

We are releasing Opacus, a new high-speed library for training PyTorch models with differential privacy (DP) that’s more scalable than existing state-of-the-art methods. Differential privacy is a mathematically rigorous framework for quantifying the anonymization of sensitive data. It’s often used in analytics, with growing interest in the machine learning (ML) community. With the release of Opacus, …

It’s a common frustration—software updates intended to make our applications run faster inadvertently end up doing just the opposite. These bugs, called performance regressions in the field of computer science, are time-consuming to fix because locating software errors normally requires substantial human intervention. To overcome this obstacle, researchers at Texas A&M University, in collaboration with …
