    Google has open-sourced Differentially Private SQL, a tool for companies aiming to keep sensitive data private. Learn more:

    For a company that’s in the business of tracking users’ online activities, Google sure is going all out to prove it’s dead serious about privacy.

    To that effect, the internet behemoth is open-sourcing a library that it uses to glean insights from aggregate data in a privacy-preserving manner.

    Called Differentially Private SQL, the library leverages the idea of differential privacy (DP) — a statistical technique that makes it possible to collect and share aggregate information about users, while safeguarding individual privacy.
