Federated compute enables researchers to send their algorithms to a remote computational service, and run remote analysis without the need to move the original data around.
Results of remote analysis are aggregated by the federated compute service and the final results are produced while ensuring privacy protection. Federated compute benefits collaborative research use cases in which it is either not allowed, or not feasible to move data around due to ethical or legal restrictions or because of practical challenges (e.g. regarding the size of data or computational challenges).
Thanks to the secure cloud native setup of the BioMedIT nodes, they are capable of supporting various standard federated compute pipelines. So far, the network has successfully supported the following federated compute pipelines on BioMedIT network:
