Preserving patient privacy with federated learning

2022 IC3 Highlight

In a SAGE Digital Health publication on October 27, a team of Intelligent Critical Care Center (IC3) researchers—including associate directors for research Tyler Loftus and Tezcan Ozrazgat-Baslanti, assistant director for AI research Benjamin Shickel, and IC3 co-directors Parisa Rashidi and Azra Bihorac—explored the potential of federated learning for improving patient privacy in medical AI models with the article “Federated learning for preserving data privacy in collaborative healthcare research.”

The federated learning approach would consolidate local AI model knowledge, rather than patient data, into a global model for use across multiple healthcare systems and preserve patient privacy.
