Application: Context-based entropy management (Patent ID: US20240020414A1)

The patent filed by Twilio Inc. describes a system for context-based data privacy that involves receiving a request for a data variable associated with an entity, obtaining contextual data, determining a probabilistic model, generating a key and perturbation value, and sending a de-identified value by modifying the current value of the data variable. The system aims to protect data privacy by applying probabilistic models and perturbation techniques to ensure secure data sharing.

The method and system outlined in the patent involve generating keys, applying probabilistic models, and perturbing data values to de-identify information based on contextual data. By utilizing a series of rules and techniques, the system can ensure data privacy while responding to requests for specific data variables associated with entities. This approach allows for secure data sharing and protection against privacy breaches, making it a valuable tool for organizations handling sensitive information.
