Zama's mission is to bring end-to-end encryption to AI. Using their homomorphic inference platform, companies can process their customer's data without seeing it, thereby preventing data breaches and surveillance.
Zama's solution is based on a breakthrough in homomorphic encryption, which enables evaluating deep neural networks over encrypted data, without changing anything to the network architecture. Zama is open-source by design, as they believe privacy-enabling technologies should benefit the widest possible community of developers and researchers.
Zama's cofounders are Dr Pascal Paillier, one of the most renowned cryptography researcher, and Dr Rand Hindi, a serial entrepreneur who formerly founded Snips.
