Running Numpy programs homomorphically

Zama will present some of its work on homomorphic data science at the next FHE.org meetup.

Making Fully Homomorphic Encryption mainstream requires developing tools that make it easy to use for non-cryptographers. Being able to take regular Numpy programs and run them on encrypted data would enable data scientists to integrate FHE into their models, however complex they might be.

At the next FHE.org meetup on September 30th, our team will showcase an experimental version of a homomorphic compiler for Numpy, including a live coding session where they will implement a homomorphic recurrent network for sentiment analysis.

FHE.org is an open community of researchers and developers interested in privacy preserving techniques such as homomorphic encryption. With more than 1300 people, it is the largest community dedicated to FHE.
