Robust Federated Learning in a Heterogeneous Environment

16 Jun 2019Avishek GhoshJustin HongDong YinKannan Ramchandran

We study a recently proposed large-scale distributed learning paradigm, namely Federated Learning, where the worker machines are end users' own devices. Statistical and computational challenges arise in Federated Learning particularly in the presence of heterogeneous data distribution (i.e., data points on different devices belong to different distributions signifying different clusters) and Byzantine machines (i.e., machines that may behave abnormally, or even exhibit arbitrary and potentially adversarial behavior)...
