SCENARIOS

Sherpa.ai unlocks the potential of AI models while preserving privacy in a collaborative environment. Our platform changes the rules for organizations’ collaboration while ensuring compliance with all applicable regulation and ESG standards.

AI can massively impact business results and processes, redefining how decisions are made and transforming industries.

The potential of AI relies on data and the people who generate and own it. Therefore, privacy and security must be at the core of every AI solution.

At Sherpa.ai we have developed a privacy-enhancing Federated Learning platform that will have a massive impact on business results while preserving privacy and ensuring compliance with current and future regulation.

Federated
learning

Federated Learning allows AI models to learn from data owned by different parties and share only the intelligence obtained by the models while preserving privacy as all data remains on the site. The data never leaves the data owner's server, but it contributes to training and improving the accuracy of the global AI model.

TRADITIONAL SOLUTION

federated learning profile picture
  • Higher risk of breaching privacy.
  • Not complaint with regulations.
  • Data control is lost once it leaves the server.
  • Large attack surface.

FEDERATED LEARNING SOLUTION

federated learning profile picture
  • Unlocks the potential of collaborative models without sharing private data.
  • Data privacy by design.
  • Regulatory compliance - data never leaves the server of the parties involved.
  • Lower risk of data breaches. The attack surface is reduced.
  • Transparency about how models are trained and how the data is used.

COMPLEMENTARY PRIVACY-ENHANCING TECHNOLOGIES

Federated Learning is not enough. Therefore Sherpa.ai has developed a platform that incorporates complementary Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (Differential Privacy, Secure Multi-party Computation or Homomorphic Encryption among others) to ensure robustness of the platform. Sherpa.ai's platform has revolutionary potential for heavily regulated sectors like Healthcare or Financial Services, where privacy as well as regulatory compliance are essential. By adding complementary technologies to ensure privacy is maintained, Sherpa.ai unlocks new scenarios of development and collaboration between organizations.

DIFFERENTIAL PRIVACY​

Differential Privacy is a statistical technique to provide data aggregations, while avoiding the leakage of individual data records. This technique ensures that malicious agents intervening in the communication of local parameters cannot trace this information back to the data sources, adding an additional layer of data privacy.

Our platform applies Differential Privacy on top of everything which provives an empirical state-of-the-art trade-off between accuracy and privacy.

SECURE MULTI PARTY COMPUTATION

Secure Multiparty Computation (SMPC) is a cryptographic protocol that distributes the computation of data from different sources to ensure that no one can view other’s data, without the need to trust a third party.

Through SMPC it is ensured that your business’s sensitive data is secured, without restricting your ability to extract all the necessary information from data.

HOMOMORPHIC ENCRYPTION

Homomorphic encryption allows to run computations on encrypted data without decrypting it. The resulting computations are also left encrypted and, when decrypted, the output is identical to the computation hadn't been ran on encrypted data.

This implies that data processing can be outsourced to a third party without needing to ensure that the third party secures the data correctly. Furthermore, without the decryption key, the original data can't be accessed.

PRIVATE ENTITY RESOLUTION

With the use of cutting edge cryptographic techniques, the synchronization and identification of these datasets is possible while always protecting privacy and maintaining the performance of the trained models.

Private Set Intersection (PSI) determines the intersection of samples from all parties. It aligns them by comparing hashed/encrypted identifiers. Our cutting-edge technology, based on the n-grams separation, can overcome typos in the identifiers.

ZERO-KNOWLEDGE PROOF

Zero-knowledge proof (ZKPS) is an encryption method that allows to verify specific information to another party without disclosing the information itself.

ZKPS is applied to defend against privacy inference attacks in Private Set Intersection.

SYNTHETIC DATA GENERATION

Synthetic data generation is a technique to produce artificial datapoints from a real dataset, as a way of protecting data privacy.

Sherpa.ai’s technology applies advanced synthetic data generation to avoid membership information leakage.

This unconventional solution, that allows Sherpa.ai to move away from standard methods, greatly reduces communication costs without degrading the accuracy of the predictive model.

DIGITAL ETHICS

Sherpa.ai’s Federated Learning platform promotes an ethical use of Artificial Intelligence as it allows organizations to extract all benefits of data and achieve highly accurate AI models without sharing any data. Protecting customer’s privacy and preventing bias in model training.

GREEN AI & CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION

A large amount of energy and computational cost is required to train AI models in a centralised way.

Sherpa.ai Federated Learning platform decentralizes data processing which cuts down energy consumption and contributes to reduce carbon footprint.

According to Cambridge Research, up to 60% in CO2 emissions can be reduced with Federated Learning vs centralized training.

Regulatory
Compliance

Sherpa.ai’s Federated Learning approach allows organizations to realise the full potential of data without sharing it.

With Sherpa.ai's plataform, all computations and model training occur in the data owner's environment. This massively reduces the risk of data breaches as well as the compliance burden. Data is never shared, therefore compliance with regulations like GDPR, HIPAA HITECH or CCPA is ensured.

This innovative approach unlocks the potential of data that is currently being underutilised due to existing regulation limiting data sharing but opens up new ways of collaboration between organizations with common problems that don't currently share data for competitive reasons.
