AntChain has teamed up with Intel to create a privacy-preserving computing platform designed for machine learning.
The new AntChain Massive Data Privacy-Preserving Computing Platform (MAPPIC) leverages trusted execution environment (TEE) technology and provides large-scale AI training data protection capabilities.
AntChain is a blockchain technology brand of Ant Group, a Chinese company owned by tech giant Alibaba.
The MAPPIC SaaS platform relies on Intel’s Software Guard Extensions (SGX) security technology, the chip giant’s BigDL open source distributed deep learning libraries, as well as the Ant Group’s Occlum operating system and AntChain services for application security audits and distributed key management.
In the future, AntChain intends to add other security technologies, such as Intel’s Trusted Domain Extensions (TDX).
“Over the past several years, Ant Group has been dedicated to the exploration and development of privacy-preserving computing technologies such as TEE, to enable secure and reliable industry collaboration in Web3, AI and other technology areas,” said Zhang Hui, CTO of the digital technology business at Ant Group.
The Ant Group claims to have filed more than 1,000 patent applications for privacy preserving computation technologies last year.
