Cryptographic Protocol Enables Greater Collaboration in Drug Discovery
Published:25 Oct.2018    Source:MIT News
MIT researchers have developed a cryptographic system that could help neural networks identify promising drug candidates in massive pharmacological datasets, while keeping the data private. Secure computation done at such a massive scale could enable broad pooling of sensitive pharmacological data for predictive drug discovery.
Neural network that securely finds potential drugs could encourage large-scale pooling of sensitive data.
