The future of fully homomorphic encryption

Assistant Professor Brandon Reagen, who focuses his research on designing specialized hardware accelerators for applications including privacy preserving computation, is proving that the future of computing can be privacy-forward while making huge advances in information processing and hardware design: “A lot of the big problems that we have in the world right now revolve around data. Consider global health coming off of COVID: if we had better ways of computing global health data analytics and sharing information without exposing private data, we might have been able to respond to the crisis more effectively and sooner,” said Reagen.
