Privacy Preserving Collaborative Filtering Using Data Obfuscation
Collaborative filtering (CF) systems are being widely used in E-commerce applications to provide recommendations to users regarding products that might be of interest to them. The prediction accuracy of these systems is dependent on the size and accuracy of the data provided by users. However, the lack of sufficient guidelines governing the use and distribution of user data raises concerns over individual privacy. Users often provide the minimal information that is required for accessing these E-commerce services. In this paper, we propose a framework for obfuscating sensitive information in such a way that it protects individual privacy and also preserves the information content required for collaborative filtering. An experimental evaluation of the performance of different CF systems on the obfuscated data proves that the proposed technique for privacy preservation does not impact the accuracy of the predictions. The proposed framework also makes it possible for multiple E-commer...
