NVIDIA has announced Clara Federated Learning, its latest edge computing AI platform that delivers AI services to medical institutions without compromising the privacy of patients’ data.
NVIDIA Clara Federated Learning, or Clara FL, leverage on “a distributed, collaborative learning technique”, which ensures patient data remains on-premise of the healthcare service provider. In terms of hardware, Clara FL runs on NVIDIA EGX intelligent edge computing platform.
In this particular distributing computing environment, the Clara FL application is “distributed as a Helms chart”, a sort of package manager for applications deployment on Kubernetes infrastructure.
The NVIDIA EGX platform is managed by a point healthcare provider, who delivers the application containers, as well as the initial AI model to participating clients, in order to start the federated learning project.
