Our engagement in the COVID-19 pandemic
APRIL 8, 2020
The COVID-19 disease is spreading around the globe and continues to do so. We at apheris AI want to join the fight against this virus and support minimizing it's socio-economic impact. In March, we published a whitepaper along with a website to call for action. We believe that our expertise in privacy-preserving computations can be leveraged to help fight this crisis. This is why we at apheris AI support the Open Covid Pledge and offer our knowledge to join forces with those working to end the pandemic.
CONTRIBUTING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
We contribute code to the open source world helping to support the fight against the spread of the coronavirus. Our latest engagement is in the field of advances in private set intersection which is highly relevant to make mobile phone contact tracing more private than approaches discussed and used currently. Together with OpenMined, we develop open source code that can be used in such apps. You can review our core work here, licensed under Apache License 2.0.
