Federated analytics, a new approach to analyzing big data, supports unprecedented collaboration across large distributed datasets that contain proprietary and/or protected information. Gilad Olswang explains how Intel harnesses the power of federated analytics in the Collaborative Cancer Cloud project. Cancer research teams across multiple institutions can now collaboratively analyze large genomics and patient datasets while preserving their intellectual property and the privacy of patient data.

This keynote is sponsored by Intel.
