AnonNet – 2021 Healthcare 1st Place

The key insights for improving patient health lie within the vast amount of patient data that medical institutions have collected around the world. This data, though, is protected health information that should rightfully be kept private. To bridge this gap, AnonNet generates synthetic data that artificially mimics the statistical characteristics of raw patient data, providing data holders the opportunity to share the full power of their raw data while under the protection of our government-grade privacy measures. By leveraging state-of-the-art AI at the intersection of deep learning and differential privacy, AnonNet believes synthetic data will unlock new revenue streams in the medical data market, while democratizing it to enable more innovation.
