Workshop "Decentralized Machine Learning at the Edge" within the ECML

The workshop Decentralized Machine Learning at the Edge will discuss how parallel machine learning can be implemented directly "at the edge", i.e. at the end devices themselves. By learning models directly on the data sources – which often have computational power of their own, for example, mobile phones, smart sensors, and tablets – network communication can be reduced by orders of magnitude.

Many of today’s parallel machine learning algorithms were developed for tightly coupled systems like computing clusters or clouds. However, the volumes of data generated from machine-to-machine interaction, by mobile phones or autonomous vehicles, surpass the amount of data that can be realistically centralized. Thus, traditional cloud computing approaches are rendered infeasible. To scale parallel machine learning to such volumes of data, computation needs to be pushed towards the edge, that is, towards the data generating devices. By learning models directly on the data sources – which often have computational power of their own, for example, mobile phones, smart sensors, and tablets – network communication can be reduced by orders of magnitude. Moreover, it enables training a central model without centralizing privacy-sensitive data. This workshop aims to foster discussion, discovery, and dissemination of novel ideas and approaches for decentralized machine learning.

The workshop takes place within the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML).

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
