In our experiments in centralized and federated settings on the brain age prediction task (estimating a person's age from their brain MRI), we demonstrate that models can be pruned up to 95% sparsity without affecting performance even in challenging federated learning environments with highly heterogeneous data distributions.
We present an analysis of the performance of Federated Learning in a paradigmatic natural-language processing task: Named-Entity Recognition (NER).
In addition to a feature selection module and a spatiotemporal learning module, DeepLATTE contains an autocorrelation-guided semi-supervised learning strategy to enforce both local autocorrelation patterns and global autocorrelation trends of the predictions in the learned spatiotemporal embedding space to be consistent with the observed data, overcoming the limitation of sparse and unevenly distributed observations.
In particular, we show that it is possible to infer if a sample was used to train the model given only access to the model prediction (black-box) or access to the model itself (white-box) and some leaked samples from the training data distribution.
Second, we use a reference set of entity names (e. g., proteins in UniProt) to identify entity mentions with high precision, but low recall, on an unlabeled corpus.
