Differential Privacy 96%
Differential Privacy “A randomized function K gives –differential privacy if for all data sets D1 and D2 differing on at most one element, and all S ⊆ Range(K), where the probability space in each case is over the coin flips of the mechanism K.” Source: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/databaseprivacy/dwork.pdf

Can the developingworld catch up or does technology merely amplify the developed world’s existing advantages? Can enterprisesand regulators keep up?
