People give massive amounts of their personal data to companies every day and these data are used to generate tremendous business values. Some economists, politicians, and activists argue that people should be paid for their contributions—but the million-dollar question is: by how much? In this talk, I will present some recent work on data valuation. I will start by introducing a principled notion for data value and then present a suite of algorithms that we developed to efficiently compute the data value. I will also discuss the applications of our data valuation techniques to the tasks beyond data pricing, such as detecting bad training data.
