What You Should Know:
– Mayo Clinic researchers are collaborating with TripleBlind on next generation algorithm sharing and training on encrypted data.
– TripleBlind’s solution functions as the innovative data encryption conduit that keeps the data and intellectual property in the algorithm secure.
TripleBlind announced today it is collaborating with Mayo Clinic researchers who will use TripleBlind tools to validate interoperability of encrypted algorithms on encrypted data and the training of new algorithms on encrypted data. TripleBlind has created a rapid, efficient and cost effective data privacy focused solution based on breakthroughs in advanced mathematics, which will be used and validated by the Mayo team. No Mayo data will be accessed by TripleBlind.
Why It Matters
Today, healthcare systems have to either transfer data or algorithms outside their institution for experts to train or conduct research. The encryption conduit being evaluated will eliminate the need for data transfer or for sharing the algorithm, thus protecting intellectual property. TripleBlind’s solution functions as the innovative data encryption conduit that keeps the data and intellectual property in the algorithm secure.
The aim of this collaboration is also to demonstrate that TripleBlind’s toolset can be applied to train entirely new algorithms from independent entities anywhere in the world without the need to share raw data, thus preserving privacy and security while meeting regulatory standards.
“Training novel algorithms on encrypted data sets and facilitating trust between independent parties is critical to the future of AI in medicine. By using advanced mathematical encryption technologies, we will greatly enhance scientific collaboration between groups and allow for more rapid development and scalable implementation of AI-driven tools to advance healthcare,” said Suraj Kapa, M.D., a practicing cardiologist and director of AI for knowledge management and delivery at Mayo Clinic.
Mayo Clinic and Dr. Kapa have financial interest in the technology referenced in this release. Mayo Clinic will use any revenue it receives to support its not-for-profit mission in patient care, education and research.
