    A Comprehensive Survey on Federated Learning in the Healthcare Area: Concept and Applications

    Deepak Upreti, Eunmok Yang, Hyunil Kim, Changho Seo
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.3, pp. 2239-2274, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.048932

    Abstract Federated learning is an innovative machine learning technique that deals with centralized data storage issues while maintaining privacy and security. It involves constructing machine learning models using datasets spread across several data centers, including medical facilities, clinical research facilities, Internet of Things devices, and even mobile devices. The main goal of federated learning is to improve robust models that benefit from the collective knowledge of these disparate datasets without centralizing sensitive information, reducing the risk of data loss, privacy breaches, or data exposure. The application of federated learning in the healthcare industry holds significant promise More >
