Innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become wide-ranging. The lifelines of AI are big data and big computing machines. However, the concern for cyber-security can present a threat to advancement of AI. The greatest AI innovations happened in a distributed manner where many teams solve a single AI problem. This is possible only when data are shared openly. In healthcare applications, such sharing of data is impractical. Medical institutions are increasingly not able to share their data due to tightening of data protection laws. Current method of sharing through remote server is cumbersome, insecure and inefficient. This way of sharing does not allow for distributed innovations and utilization of large super-computing facilities.
This project develops a secure data sharing solution for remote AI developments. The novel solution is built on top of Cloak Apps platform, together with A*STAR’s Bioinformatics Institute’s technologies for AI on clinical data.
