Federated privacy-preserving data collaborations

Unlock the power of federated data science and AI

Bitfount is the complete platform for enterprise-grade, privacy-preserving, compliant data collaborations without any data sharing.

What is federated data science and AI?

Data collaborations without data sharing

Federated data science sends AI and other algorithms to data, instead of the other way around. Data stays behind its custodian's firewall at all times.

From accelerating clinical trials to fighting financial crime. Set up a federated AI and analytics network, customise with additional privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) out of the box, and let your team focus on insights and innovation instead of bureaucracy.

Data custodians

Connect a dataset to the Bitfount network in minutes, join a project, run tasks yourself or grant usage permissions to your collaborators. No code or data sharing required.

Download the desktop app

Project coordinators

Set up a collaborative project using either 3rd-party AI models and algorithms or your own. Invite data custodians and start generating insights immediately and safely.

Sign up and create your first project

Algorithm developers

Upload your custom models to be used in others' projects or your own. Project-by-project access controls ensure your model is only used where you want it to be.

Why federated data science and AI?

Bridge the gap between sensitive data and insight

Safely tap into sensitive data
Evaluate partnerships
Mobilise consortia
Put your data assets to work
Tap into datasets

Shareable data is just the tip of the iceberg

The vast majority of data goes unused, usually because it can't be shared externally. Now there's a better way.

  • Use sensitive data without putting individual privacy at risk
  • Data analytics and AI without physical data transfer
  • Use previously-unavailable data for AI training and deployment
Evaluate partnerships

Look before you leap

Break the chicken-and-egg stalemate of data partnerships by precisely understanding ROI without months of up-front negotiation and contracting.

  • Validate data's value safely before any agreements are signed
  • Run risk-free partnership pilots
  • Compare suppliers without putting individual privacy at risk
Mobilise consortia

More than the sum of their parts

For successful consortia, make sure data teams aren't held back by barriers to data access and that data custodians can safely benefit from the resulting innovation.

  • Protect your consortium with strong governance controls
  • No complex, net-new infrastructure. No data lift-and-shifts
  • Ensure all parties receive the proper value for participation
Put data to work

Remove internal data access hurdles

Whether breaking down internal data silos for cross-jurisdictional collaboration, or monetising commercially sensitive data via a marketplace, let your data safely tell its story.

  • Remove barriers to data access for internal teams, while controlling how employees leverage internal data
  • Advanced governance controls for audit and compliance
  • Built in privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs)
