Abstract Nowadays, Internet of things (IoT) devices and mobile phones are being used for collecting large volumes of data (e.g., photos, videos, location information) from various applications such as social media apps, medical equipment, and business platforms. Since the data is distributed and privacy-sensitive, the cloud-centric approaches for training a machine learning model may not be feasible, where the raw data is collected from many clients to train a model. Also, cloud-centric methods involve longer propagation delays and incur unacceptable latency for applications in which on-the-edge real-time decisions have to be made. Collaborative learning (CL) is a decentralized Machine Learning (ML) approach that trains machine learning models in a distributed way by guaranteeing that the training data remains on personal devices that preserve privacy and enable on-edge real-time decisions. In this talk, I am going to talk about collaborative learning and its applications in process industries.
