AI and Health Tent - DISCO: Understanding Federated Learning

Apr 30, 20237:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Salle BC 01


Visit this special hospital tent showcasing healthcare tools that use artificial intelligence and machine learning. In this activity you will work together in a collaborative drawing activity. Together you will colour Elmer the elephant, to give him back his colours. But be careful, each participant will be limited to one colour! Through this activity, we propose an analogy between collaborative colouring and one of the projects of our DISCO laboratory. In order to learn from each other, machines often have to collaborate in resource-limited environments, or with data constraints. To overcome this problem, there is a concept called "Federated Learning", which we put into practice through our DISCO project. Demo run by Walid Ben Naceur Professor Martin Jaggi - Machine Learning and Optimization Lab (MLO) Dr. Mary-Anne Hartley - intelligent Global Health Group (iGH) Open access visit Meeting point at the BC building reception desk
