Wireless Federated Learning for 6G Networks


Conventional machine learning techniques are conducted in a centralized manner. Recently, the massive volume of generated wireless data, the privacy concerns and the increasing computing capabilities of wireless end-devices have led to the emergence of a promising decentralized solution, termed as Wireless Federated Learning (WFL). In this talk, the application of WFL in 6G networks will be presented. After analyzing the key concepts of WFL, we will discuss the core challenges of WFL imposed by the wireless environment. Finally, we shed light to the future directions of WFL, aiming to compose a constructive integration of FL into the future wireless networks. Finally, a novel communication protocol for WFL networks, that is based on NOMA will be introduced and optimized.
