vantage6

An open-source infrastructure for privacy preserving analysis

The need

Collaborative Analysis

Answering many of the questions in health care often requires incorporating data that are located at different sources. Typically, data from different parties are analyzed by centralizing them. That is, data are brought to where the algorithms are. Unfortunately, this raises heavy concerns regarding the privacy and security of sensitive patient data.

The solution

Federated Learning

Federated learning has emerged as a technological solution to address these concerns. In this novel paradigm, algorithms are brought to where the data are. This way, we can maximize the potential of multiple datasets while minimizing data leaks and privacy risks.

The tool

vantage6

This led us to create vantage6, our open-source platform for supporting the development of federated learning projects.

Philosophy

vantage6 is built on top of three pillars
