21 Oct 2020  ·  Yifan Hu, YuHang Zhou, Jun Xiao, Chao Wu ·

Federated learning(FL) is a rapidly growing field and many centralized and decentralized FL frameworks have been proposed. However, it is of great challenge for current FL frameworks to improve communication performance and maintain the security and robustness under malicious node attacks. In this paper, we propose Galaxy Federated Learning Framework(GFL), a decentralized FL framework based on blockchain. GFL introduces the consistent hashing algorithm to improve communication performance and proposes a novel ring decentralized FL algorithm(RDFL) to improve decentralized FL performance and bandwidth utilization. In addition, GFL introduces InterPlanetary File System(IPFS) and blockchain to further improve communication efficiency and FL security. Our experiments show that GFL improves communication performance and decentralized FL performance under the data poisoning of malicious nodes and non-independent and identically distributed(Non-IID) datasets.
