IoT Thrust Seminar | Distributed Learning in Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

10:30am - 11:30am
W4 - 202, Zoom: Meeting ID: 949 0213 6698 Passcode: iott

Distributed learning techniques can efficiently support training machine learning models by exploiting the distributed computational resources in wireless networks. In this talk, distributed learning in heterogeneous wireless networks will be discussed, with focus on the most recent distributed learning approaches. Considering the diversity of wireless users in terms of different communication, computational and data resources, implementing distributed learning techniques in wireless networks is challenging. This talk starts from a comprehensive overview of the state-of-art distributed learning architectures in wireless communications. Then recent work on designing new hybrid distributed learning architectures and user scheduling schemes to address the challenges of diverse users in wireless networks is introduced. Moreover, energy-efficient user scheduling to improve energy and computation efficiency of wireless users will also be discussed.
