vantage6 stands for privacy preserving federated learning infrastructure for secure insight exchange.
The project is inspired by the Personal Health Train (PHT) concept. In this analogy vantage6 are the tracks upon the algorithms can run.
vantage6 is here for
delivering algorithms to data stations and collect their results
manage users, organizations, collaborations, computation tasks and their results
providing control (security) at the data-stations by their owners
vantage6 does/is not (yet)
formats the data at the data station
aligns data across the data stations
a finished/polished product
vantage6 is designed with three fundamental functional aspects of Federated learning.
Autonomy. All involved parties should remain independent and autonomous.
Heterogeneity. Parties should be allowed to have differences in hardware and operating systems.
Flexibility. Related to the latter, a federated learning infrastructure should not limit the use of relevant data.
vantage6 is completely open source under the Apache License.
We have monthly technical community meetings which can be joined by anyone interested. If you want to join, find us on our Discord channel.
