必要预备知识 (Prerequisite Knowledge)

Attendees should be familiar with machine learning applications, and have some exposure to distributed machine learning approaches. Familiarity with the TensorFlow framework will be helpful for the demo and do-it-yourself part of the talk, but not required.

您将学到什么 (What you'll learn)

* (Overview) What is federated learning, and how is it different from the traditional ML approach * (Overview) How federated learning differs from / interacts with other privacy-preserving technologies * (Case studies) Large-scale real world uses of federated learning in Google products, including end-to-end systems overview. * (Skill) How to try out federated learning on your own data and TensorFlow models, and evaluate the results

描述 (Description)

With the advent of connected devices with computation and storage capabilities, it is now possible to run machine learning workflows entirely on-device. This talk will introduce federated learning and other technologies that enable devices to collaboratively and securely learn ML models, while retaining all data locally. Federated learning improves upon the traditional, fully centralized approaches by reducing the costs and risks related to sensitive data handling, working better in bandwidth and power-constrained environments, and providing a straightforward, effective mechanism for personalization at scale. It also puts users back in control of their data, while still enabling developers to build intelligent applications that leverage insights from that data. Federated learning is already used at scale by Google – come to this talk to hear how!
