Federated Learning: Unlock the Value of Distributed Data

November 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Speaker: Roshan Houmanfar, VP of Machine Learning Products, Integrate.ai

Abstract:

More data means more robust and effective machine learning models. Traditional machine learning techniques rely on centralization of data therefore data silos are a blocker to achieving the desired performance. Federated Learning, is a well studied theoretical methodology that breaks the barrier of data silos by bringing the training of machine learning models to the datasets. In the recent years more efforts have been made to pave the way of moving this research concept into product. In this session we would like to help users become familiar with the concept and get an understanding of benefits and challenges in a hands on environment.

What You’ll Learn:

The applied challenges of cutting edge techniques in dealing with distributed data
