Title:  “Efficient Federated Learning for Internet of Vehicles”



Federated learning (FL) is a promising paradigm for achieving distributed intelligence by protecting user privacy in Internet-of-Vehicles (IoV). Considering limited computing and communication resources, it is important to compress learning models and select appropriate clients from a huge number of users to participate in the training process. This talk discusses two approaches to empower federated learning in IoV. First approach uses a knowledge distillation-based scheme to compress local models to reduce the communication overhead between FL client and the central server. Second approach uses a fuzzy logic based client selection scheme to improve the learning efficiency
