OWKIN – a step into the direction of democratizing data?
He claimed that transfer learning technologies are a milestone in the persuit of the democratisation of data and deep learning. Because, once you can make an algorithm available, that can be applied to different diagnostic fields, there is no necessity to make sensitive patient data available to everyone anymore: The user can just train a freely available algorithm with his specific data set and receive the software she/he needs.
On their platform the team of OWKIN wants to make algorithms and datasets available to everyone. We see this as a very good approach, that is worth following. We look forward to their further development.
