Rapid growth of online services enables accumulation of personal information in the real world, such as "who goes where with whom"or "who buys what". Detailed personal information needs to be treated under prudent control for avoidance of misuse while such information can become a source of personalized services which support our daily life in an advanced way. Most of such personal information has a network structure. Based on this observation, this project aims at establishing technologies for knowledge discovery which allows us to make use of private network-structured information in a privacy-preserving manner.
