Data contain valuable information that could play important roles in decision making, but many data are sensitive in areas such as finance, economics, and life science. How to collect and analyze data while still protecting individual privacy has attracted increasing attention from researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. We propose a privacy-preserving data collection algorithm that allows a central administration to collect the data set while still preserving individual privacy. Moreover, we demonstrate the applications of our algorithm to machine learning.
