For distributed machine learning with sensitive data, we demonstrate how minimizing distance correlation between raw data and intermediary representations reduces leakage of sensitive raw data patterns across client communications while maintaining model accuracy. Leakage (measured using distance correlation between input and intermediate representations) is the risk associated with the invertibility of raw data from intermediary representations. This can prevent client entities that hold sensitive data from using distributed deep learning services. We demonstrate that our method is resilient to such reconstruction attacks and is based on reduction of distance correlation between raw data and learned representations during training and inference with image datasets. We prevent such reconstruction of raw data while maintaining information required to sustain good classification accuracies: https://arxiv.org/pdf/2008.09161.pdf
