Federated Learning for Healthcare – Collaborative AI without Sharing Patient Data

Watch the video here


Artificial Intelligence and in particular Deep Learning has become an important technique for computer-aided medical applications. One of the common core requirements for learning a robust and accurate algorithm is the availability of an extensive and diverse data set. This, in turn, poses a major challenge for medical applications because patient data needs to be protected and cannot easily be shared. Federated learning addresses this problem by enabling to learn collaboratively across several institutions without explicitly sharing patient data.

This talk will give an introduction to the core concepts of Federated Learning (FL) and discusses the benefits, the unique considerations and challenges of implementing FL in the context of healthcare.
