“I am very excited to join Bitfount’s advisory board. The team and I share the same passion and it is an incredible honour to be able to advise them to reach their true potential. What excites me the most about Bitfount is the incredible opportunity to leverage AI in health whilst maintaining high levels of privacy. With capabilities like Bitfount’s, we will no longer have to think about the trade-off of getting the advantage of AI models vs. the implications of data privacy. Discussions around AI Ethics and governance will be fundamentally different in a world where Bitfount can transparently and securely bring models to data” - Sajan Khosla
