A communication system including a receiver to receive training data. An input interface to receive input data coupled to a hardware processor and a memory. The hardware processor is configured to initialize the privacy module using the training data. Generate a trained privacy module, by iteratively optimizing an objective function. Wherein for each iteration the objective function is computed by a combination of a distortion of the useful attributes in the transformed data and of a mutual information between the sensitive attributes and the transformed data. Such that the mutual information is estimated by the auxiliary module that maximizes a conditional likelihood of the sensitive attributes given the transformed data. Receive the input data via the input interface. Apply the trained privacy module on the input data to produce an application specific transformed data. A transmitter to transmit the application specific transformed data over a communication channel.
