Flavio Bergamaschi is a Senior Research Scientist and currently the leader of the group developing IBM's Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) technology for robustness, serviceability and usability, and designing and developing real world FHE applications. He also represents IBM in the industry-wide homomorphic encryption standards.
His areas of expertise include cryptography, distributed systems (MIMD & SIMD), signal processing and machine learning.
He served as one of the principal researchers in the US/UK International Technology Alliance where he started his work with FHE and the use of FPGAs to accelerate FHE computation and build the first-of-a-kind Spatio-Temporal Private Set Intersection application, database search and retrieval by fuzzy match.
His current research work is in the area of homomorphically computing on encrypted data for machine-learning based additive modeling. He also holds various patents on homomorphic encryption technology.
