Validating a System Development Kit for edge federated learning

Reference number
Coordinator Scaleout Systems AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 4 918 474
Project duration October 2023 - September 2025
Status Ongoing
Venture Advanced digitalization - Enabling technologies
Call Advanced and innovative digitalization 2023 - call two

Purpose and goal

The project´s primary aim is to increase our understanding of scalability and cyber security in federated machine learning specifically for cloud edge applications. We will also further develop and validate a system development kit for federated machine learning, FEDn, for large-scale applications in fleet intelligence.

Expected results and effects

Concrete objectives include: - A new testbed for large-scale experiments with millions of clients in a federation. - An increased understanding of the effect of so-called "stragglers" in federated machine learning with large numbers of clients. - New theory and analysis around how selection and partitioning of clients enters a formal security analysis. - New aggregation strategies that improve both scalability and security.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is organized into four work packages that will largely overlap in time. We will form a cross-organizational project group with members from Scaleout, Uppsala Universitet and another partner. We plan to meet regularly via Zoom (every two weeks) and in physical meetings once a quarter.
