Federated analytics, a new approach to analyzing big data, balances privacy, autonomy, IP protection and 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, which leverages a new federated analytics platform to deliver secure, scalable, and accelerated analytics across multiple locations for collaborative cancer research. Gilad explores how multiple institutions can now collaboratively analyze their large genomics and patient datasets while preserving their intellectual property and the privacy of patient data.
