    WebFLex: A Framework for Web Browsers-Based Peer-to-Peer Federated Learning Systems Using WebRTC

    Mai Alzamel1,*, Hamza Ali Rizvi2, Najwa Altwaijry1, Isra Al-Turaiki1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 4177-4204, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048370

    Abstract Scalability and information personal privacy are vital for training and deploying large-scale deep learning models. Federated learning trains models on exclusive information by aggregating weights from various devices and taking advantage of the device-agnostic environment of web browsers. Nevertheless, relying on a main central server for internet browser-based federated systems can prohibit scalability and interfere with the training process as a result of growing client numbers. Additionally, information relating to the training dataset can possibly be extracted from the distributed weights, potentially reducing the privacy of the local data used for training.

    A Cover-Independent Deep Image Hiding Method Based on Domain Attention Mechanism

    Nannan Wu1, Xianyi Chen1,*, James Msughter Adeke2, Junjie Zhao2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 3001-3019, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.045311

    Abstract Recently, deep image-hiding techniques have attracted considerable attention in covert communication and high-capacity information hiding. However, these approaches have some limitations. For example, a cover image lacks self-adaptability, information leakage, or weak concealment. To address these issues, this study proposes a universal and adaptable image-hiding method. First, a domain attention mechanism is designed by combining the Atrous convolution, which makes better use of the relationship between the secret image domain and the cover image domain. Second, to improve perceived human similarity, perceptual loss is incorporated into the training process. The experimental results are promising, with More >
