By Rick Echevarria

One year ago, Intel launched the Pandemic Response Technology Initiative (PRTI), a $50 million commitment to use technology to combat the effects of COVID-19. The Initiative sought to provide a 360-degree view of the challenges ahead, focusing on how our technologies can enhance healthcare, education and the economic recovery of businesses at multiple levels. Our goals were to provide immediate relief where it was needed most, develop innovative solutions to support the new normal and invest in technology that would limit the impact of future crises. Nearly every piece of Intel® technology was leveraged in some way.

Twelve months later, the scope of PRTI work includes 230 projects spread across 170 organizations. We’ve partnered with organizations around the world to apply our solutions and expertise to geographically unique problems as well as global challenges, and we don’t want to stop.

Aligned with Intel’s RISE 2030 goals, we are transitioning this process and the technical expertise of our employee volunteers to the Intel RISE Technology Initiative (IRTI). The IRTI will continue to review and fund projects related to healthcare, education and the economy with new dedicated workstreams for social equity and human rights, accessibility, and climate action.

IRTI will create a broader, purpose-driven platform for action with a new $20 million commitment. We’re excited to share more about those projects throughout the year. For now, our work with the PRTI offers a glimpse at what can be achieved through technology, strategic partnerships and a collective desire to do good.

healthcare

Diagnose, Treat and Prevent the Next Pandemic

The challenges of the healthcare industry are innumerable. When assessing projects, how do you choose between helping patients, assisting medical staff, funding life-saving research or making sense of massive amounts of unstructured patient data? We wanted to ensure we were tapping into the full breadth of Intel’s portfolio to provide support and make a lasting difference. The PRTI worked with partners across the healthcare space, from universities and hospitals to equipment manufacturers and infrastructure partners, to maximize our impact at every level.

Diagnose: In early 2020, there was a huge shortage of polymerase chain reaction tests, which are critical to the analysis and identification of infectious agents. Intel partners in the medical imaging space stepped up to use CT and X-ray scanning machines to help diagnose and triage patients with COVID-19. Using artificial intelligence (AI), these machines were able to determine the presence and severity of COVID-19 and facilitate a treatment plan when tests weren’t readily available. This paved the way for organizations to create diverse datasets for more accurate diagnoses. UC San Francisco leveraged Intel® SGX to deploy a confidential computing platform that will help protect both the algorithms and privacy of healthcare data when building AI models.

Treat: Telehealth solutions enabled access to medical care while minimizing the risk for patients and clinicians. Intel worked with Banner Health and VeeMed to augment in-room displays with Intel® NUC Mini PCs running telehealth software. Providers and specialists were able to consult on COVID-19 cases, and medical staff could remotely speak to patients, log data from in-room monitors and even zoom in to check a patient’s vitals.

Prevent: Our projects targeted patient and provider needs along with work in research and therapeutic development. This included partnering with our customers to provide high performance compute (HPC) resources for COVID-19 research as well as research projects that go beyond the current pandemic. The Berlin Institute of Health leveraged Intel®-based HPC architecture to successfully perform compute-intensive RNA sequencing on a single-cell level to better understand how the novel coronavirus works.

education

Connect, Engage and Evolve Education

The immediate needs in the education space during the pandemic were very clear: Children needed devices and connectivity to stay in school. As we worked to provide devices to students, we learned that focusing on connectivity alone would be a “maintenance-only” solution. We wanted students to actually advance. We partnered with schools, ecosystem partners, local governments, teachers and device manufacturers to make a difference through a solutions-led approach.

Connect: The PRTI engaged in many opportunities to distribute laptops and bolster connectivity in communities around the world. With the Intel® Online Learning Initiative, we were able to serve a million students globally. In the U.S., we focused in the areas of most need, we provided a remote learning solution to students in over 15,000 families representing 45 school districts that serve Title 1 students in the U.S.

Among the students awarded were cadets from the Airforce JROTC program at Aberdeen High School in Mississippi, which offers a gateway to Advanced Placement Computer Science education.

For Aberdeen High School in Mississippi, we provided a remote learning solution to students in over 15,000 families representing 45 school districts that serve Title 1 students in the U.S. Among the students awarded were cadets from the Airforce JROTC program, which offers a gateway to Advanced Placement Computer Science education.

Engage: Through our work with the LA Unified School District, we learned that 30% of students who were able to connect while distance learning would switch off. We realized the need to develop educational materials that keep students engaged. Our Houston Space Center partnership created a new public program around NASA’s Artemis mission to the moon in 2024. A group of 500 educators engaged in the deployment of virtual learning experiences about the next manned moon mission. The project will include future NASA missions, too.

Evolve: One of our most exciting education projects focused on the crucial emotional support teachers provide. District Zero is a Chicago-based company that focuses on wellness-based learning. Using natural-language processing and sentiment analysis, District Zero’s emotional learning tool gives teachers actionable insights and solutions to help students who may be struggling. With Intel’s support, the company will deploy its system for all students in the Indian Prairie School District that serves 30,000 students from areas outside just outside of Chicago.

economy

Protect, Adapt and Enable the Economy

Throughout the year, we looked at multiple factors contributing to the economic downturn. The common theme was safety, whether it’s developing solutions that make it safe for businesses to open, minimizing the risk to patrons or investing in solutions that help deliver a more resilient economy when the next global health crisis occurs.

Protect: Citywide quarantines and stay-at-home orders are a last resort designed to stop the spread of contagious disease, but even with these protective measures in place, businesses need to be able to open safely to serve essential needs. The PRTI invested in several projects designed to make buildings safer during the pandemic, including AI-enabled occupancy and social distancing controls with Johnson Controls. The solution trades human observation monitoring of social distancing for environmental data and sensors to optimize air quality and physical distancing analysis.

Adapt: Helping businesses adapt to facilitate essential activities is key to economic recovery. While movement and travel were greatly limited by the pandemic, they cannot be eliminated completely. GE Digital Aviation Software developed a new predictive maintenance application for cabin air quality to help airline carriers proactively monitor the health of air quality systems on their flights.

Enable:  Investing in solutions offers a degree of resilience against the future spread of disease and pandemics. With funding from Intel, Purdue University is developing autonomous robots that can detect pathogens and disinfect within seconds. Two functional robots already exist and are being tested in Purdue COVID-19 quarantine rooms and classrooms. Six patents later, the college is moving toward commercialization opportunities. The hope is that this work will help make public spaces safer and minimize exposure risk in high-traffic “hot zone” areas for pathogens.

A New Path for Positive Impact with the IRTI

Key to the success of the PRTI projects are the scores of Intel experts working with partners to understand the heart of the issues and provide tailored solutions that yield real results. You can see a map of our global impact with the PRTI here. Watch for this map to grow as we continue this work through the IRTI. The work has already started with the IRTI, and we’re looking forward to sharing more throughout the year. Visit the website for more information.

Nasdaq, a global technology company, leverages the crypto acceleration in Intel’s 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable platform to significantly speed up computation for its high performance advanced homomorphic encryption applications. (Credit: Nasdaq)

What’s New: Nasdaq, a global technology company serving the capital markets and other industries, is leveraging the crypto acceleration in Intel’s 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform to significantly speed up computation for its high performance advanced homomorphic encryption (HE) applications. HE is an emerging form of encryption that allows the ability to compute private data without having to decrypt the data.

“Homomorphic encryption is a powerful new tool that will allow our customers to gain valuable insights while protecting the most private and sensitive data. In our collaboration with Nasdaq, we are building advanced technology to power the future of computing.”
–Nir Peled, general manager, Private AI and Analytics, Intel

Why It Matters: Intel continues to introduce new instruction set architecture (ISA) extensions designed to significantly increase cryptographic performance and further enable the emerging HE ecosystem. HE allows users to compute on always-encrypted data. The data never needs to be decrypted, helping reduce the risk from cyberthreats. HE offers developers and enterprises new ways of gaining insights from sensitive data across organizations, and Intel’s platform improves performance to support end-to-end data encryption. To further accelerate HE applications, Intel and Nasdaq are co-engineering HE calculations utilizing the new Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 512 Integer Fused Multiply Add Instructions (AVX512_IFMA) available in the latest 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor.

To test the real-world applications of HE, Nasdaq validates these capabilities through a variety of proof of concepts. It has been utilizing HE to better enable artificial intelligence and machine learning datasets, as well as apply HE in Nasdaq’s fight against financial crime — particularly around anti-money laundering (AML) and fraud detection. Having the ability to unlock proprietary data without exposing the data itself allows for a stronger collective effort to consolidate unique datasets to analyze and identify potential financial crime activity.

“Homomorphic encryption permits computation on encrypted data without decryption, enabling users to gain new insights from encrypted datasets,” said Nikolai Larbalestier, senior vice president, Enterprise Architecture at Nasdaq. “However, HE is performance-intensive and poses usability challenges for large, enterprise-size datasets. For Nasdaq, we have been exploring and experimenting with HE in strengthening our technology solutions that focus on financial crime detection while also complying with data privacy regulations. The performance improvements achieved with Intel’s latest Xeon platform will support our efforts in wider adoption of HE, particularly in improving data analysis and insights, as well as product innovation around areas such as anti-financial crime.”

How It Works: Homomorphic encryption (HE) is a powerful new technique for enabling computation and collaboration on private and sensitive data through end-to-end encryption. HE could revolutionize how financial institutions interact with and share datasets for analysis in the future, empowering organizations to gain valuable insights while reducing risk of exposure that could compromise confidentiality.

Trusted execution environments, such as Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX), also address the protection of data while being processed in memory, though from a slightly different angle. Intel SGX provides a hardware-based trusted enclave for general-purpose workloads to operate within, protecting both data and code from the broader system stack with minimal performance overhead. As performance and usability challenges are resolved, HE promises to bring new options for end-to-end encryption, especially in purpose-specific data-sharing schemes. This is a new frontier and a burgeoning arena for innovation as attacks become more sophisticated and regulatory expectations increase.

Intel also recently announced that it had been selected as a research partner to perform in DARPA’s Data Protection in Virtual Environments (DPRIVE) program. The multi-year program aims to develop an accelerator for fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) to reduce the performance overhead currently associated with it. When realized, the accelerator could deliver a massive improvement in executing FHE workloads. Intel is collaborating with partners to provide leadership in this exciting field, ensuring the broadest and most performant set of options for protecting sensitive data wherever it resides.

Intel Teams with Leidos, Fortanix to Accelerate Clinical Trials

294803433 leidos
What’s New: Leidos and Fortanix are using Intel® Software Guard Extension (Intel® SGX), a unique security technology of Intel® Xeon® processors, to help streamline and accelerate the clinical drug trial process. Leidos provides information technology services for a variety of industries, including life sciences. As clinical trials have become increasingly complex, building systems that can address privacy and security concerns are paramount for driving collaboration that can accelerate therapies to market.

“Collection and analysis of protected medical data is fraught with challenges, including the sensitivity of and distributed nature of the data across multiple healthcare entities and systems, which requires strong protections for patient privacy. Technology now gives us the tools to securely share private information between parties and create a collaborative, real-time clinical information system. By addressing security concerns at the hardware level, Intel SGX creates a trusted computing environment that helps ensure data integrity and privacy. This means information is shared and validated more quickly and securely — and needed therapies can more quickly be presented to those in need.”
–Chris Gough, general manager, Health and Life Sciences at Intel

How It Works: Intel SGX and the Fortanix Confidential Computing Manager provide the foundation for creating a distributed network of trusted computing environments. This enables Leidos to deliver services that facilitate the real-time sharing of critical data while meeting the stringent patient and industry compliance regulations.

Why It Matters: The ability to quickly and cost-effectively get new drugs to market and help ensure safety once there is one of healthcare’s greatest challenges. Real-world data (RWD) — including electronic health records — has the potential to increase the efficiency of the traditional drug development process and improve future clinical trial design. And increasing the body of knowledge around how to use RWD in clinical research can speed the adoption of these methods.

However, gathering RWD from hospitals, clinics and medical groups must be accomplished while preserving patient privacy and complying with HIPAA and other regulations. All queries, data, applications and results must be encrypted at rest, in motion and in use. This historically has been a huge technological challenge. However, Intel SGX enclaves, orchestrated using Fortanix Confidential Computing Manager, now enable Leidos to create a distributed trusted computing environment that meets all these requirements.

“Our team at Leidos understands the technological challenges associated with clinical information systems and the need to create trusted computing environments to securely share information,” said Erika Killian, FDA Portfolio director at Leidos. “Intel SGX gives us the hardware foundation needed to build an ecosystem of partners that can confidently share data privately and securely, while still meeting the stringent compliance regulations in the space. Given the size and scope of these sorts of trials, we’re also excited by the upcoming scalability and performance enhancements that will enable us to run larger amounts of data through SGX enclaves.”

How It’s Unique: At its core, Intel SGX is a set of instructions that increases the security of application code and data, giving them more protection from disclosure or modification. Developers can partition sensitive information into enclaves (or Trusted Execution Environments or TEEs), which are areas in memory on the processor that protect data while in use and only allow access by authorized code. The enclaves are isolated from the rest of the environment to ensure transmitted information is encrypted and can only be decoded once inside the enclave. Finally, applications running in these protected areas are verified and signed by data suppliers, which helps protect against malicious functions hidden in application code.

Leidos utilizes Intel SGX to create a centralized research portal where enclaves capture, encrypt and analyze data. Secure enclaves at RWD endpoints receive queries, verify policy approvals, gather data and return requests to the centralized portal. Using the Fortanix Self-Defending Key Management Service as a centralized key management system, with cryptographic keys also being protected within Intel SGX enclaves, requested clinical data is tokenized and remains encrypted at rest, in transit and in use.
