# Bitfount-Supported Algorithms

Algorithms dictate what type of task a Data Scientist is looking to execute. Bitfount requires specification of these algorithms to ensure a Data Scientist has the appropriate authorisation to execute them.

Bitfount currently supports the following algorithms, which are described in more technical detail in the API Reference:

Algorithm | Description |
---|---|

Federated Training | Algorithm for training a model remotely and returning its updated parameters. |

Evaluate | Algorithm for evaluating a model and returning metrics. |

Train and Evaluate | Algorithm for training a model, evaluating it, and returning metrics. |

Inference | Algorithm for running inference on a model and returning predictions. |

ColumnAverage | Simple algorithm for taking the arithmetic mean of a column in a table. |

SQL Query | Simple algorithm for running a SQL query on a table. |

Private SQL Query | Enables the user to run a private SQL query using differential privacy by specifying epsilon and delta. |

Compute Intersection RSA | Enables the user to compute the overlap between two datasets on encrypted data and return the result. |

CSV Report | Saves the results of another algorithm as a CSV on the Pod. |

Hugging Face Transformer Perplexity | Computes and returns the perplexity of a huggingface model on the Pod's text data. |

Hugging Face Transformer Text Generation | Generates text using a huggingface model. Prompts can exist on the Pod or be sent dynamically by the Data Scientist. |

Hugging Face Image Classification | Image Classification Algorithm for pre-trained HuggingFace models. |

Hugging Face Image Segmentation | Image Segmentation Algorithm for pre-trained HuggingFace models. |

Hugging Face Text Classification | Text Classification Algorithm for pre-trained HuggingFace models. |

Hugging Face Zero Shot Image Classification | Zero Shot Image Classification Algorithm for pre-trained HuggingFace models. |

Hugging Face TIMM Fine Tuning | Algorithm for fine-tuning Hugging Face image models from the TIMM library. |

Hugging Face TIMM Inference | Algorithm for running inference on Hugging Face image models from the TIMM library. |
