FADL: Federated-Autonomous Deep Learning for Distributed Electronic Health Record

  title={FADL: Federated-Autonomous Deep Learning for Distributed Electronic Health Record},
  author={Dianbo Liu and Timothy Miller and Raheel Sayeed and Kenneth D. Mandl},
Electronic health record (EHR) data is collected by individual institutions and often stored across locations in silos. Getting access to these data is difficult and slow due to security, privacy, regulatory, and operational issues. We show, using ICU data from 58 different hospitals, that machine learning models to predict patient mortality can be trained efficiently without moving health data out of their silos using a distributed machine learning strategy. We propose a new method, called…

Federated Learning: Strategies for Improving Communication Efficiency

Two ways to reduce the uplink communication costs are proposed: structured updates, where the user directly learns an update from a restricted space parametrized using a smaller number of variables, e.g. either low-rank or a random mask; and sketched updates, which learn a full model update and then compress it using a combination of quantization, random rotations, and subsampling.
