Distributed Learning Approaches for Automated Chest X-Ray Diagnosis

  title={Distributed Learning Approaches for Automated Chest X-Ray Diagnosis},
  author={Edoardo Giacomello and Michele Cataldo and Daniele Loiacono and Pier Luca Lanzi},
Deep Learning has established in the latest years as a successful approach to address a great variety of tasks. Healthcare is one of the most promising field of application for Deep Learning approaches since it would allow to help clinicians to analyze patient data and perform diagnoses. However, despite the vast amount of data collected every year in hospitals and other clinical institutes, privacy regulations on sensitive data such as those related to health pose a serious challenge to the…

Split Learning for collaborative deep learning in healthcare

This work proves the significant benefit of distributed learning in healthcare, and paves the way for future real-world implementations of split learning based approach in the medical field.

CheXpert: A Large Chest Radiograph Dataset with Uncertainty Labels and Expert Comparison

A labeler is designed to automatically detect the presence of 14 observations in radiology reports, capturing uncertainties inherent in radiograph interpretation, in CheXpert, a large dataset that contains 224,316 chest radiographs of 65,240 patients.

Multi-Institutional Deep Learning Modeling Without Sharing Patient Data: A Feasibility Study on Brain Tumor Segmentation

This study introduces the first use of federated learning for multi-institutional collaboration, enabling deep learning modeling without sharing patient data, and demonstrates that the performance of Federated semantic segmentation models on multimodal brain scans is similar to that of models trained by sharing data.

Split learning for health: Distributed deep learning without sharing raw patient data

This paper compares performance and resource efficiency trade-offs of splitNN and other distributed deep learning methods like federated learning, large batch synchronous stochastic gradient descent and show highly encouraging results for splitNN.

Communication-Efficient Learning of Deep Networks from Decentralized Data

This work presents a practical method for the federated learning of deep networks based on iterative model averaging, and conducts an extensive empirical evaluation, considering five different model architectures and four datasets.

Rethinking the Inception Architecture for Computer Vision

This work is exploring ways to scale up networks in ways that aim at utilizing the added computation as efficiently as possible by suitably factorized convolutions and aggressive regularization.

Federated Learning: Collaborative Machine Learning without Centralized Training Data

Federated learning allows several actors to collaborate on the development of a single, robust machine learning model without sharing data, allowing crucial issues such as data privacy, data security, data access rights, and access to heterogeneous data to be addressed.

Practical Secure Aggregation for Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning

This protocol allows a server to compute the sum of large, user-held data vectors from mobile devices in a secure manner, and can be used, for example, in a federated learning setting, to aggregate user-provided model updates for a deep neural network.

Calibrating Noise to Sensitivity in Private Data Analysis

The study is extended to general functions f, proving that privacy can be preserved by calibrating the standard deviation of the noise according to the sensitivity of the function f, which is the amount that any single argument to f can change its output.

MobileNets: Efficient Convolutional Neural Networks for Mobile Vision Applications

This work introduces two simple global hyper-parameters that efficiently trade off between latency and accuracy and demonstrates the effectiveness of MobileNets across a wide range of applications and use cases including object detection, finegrain classification, face attributes and large scale geo-localization.
