Title: Federated Learning for Healthcare

Abstract: Health care is predominantly regarded as a crucial consideration in promoting the general physical and mental health and well-being of people around the world. The amount of data generated by healthcare systems is enormous, making it challenging to manage. Many machine learning approaches were implemented to develop dependable and robust solutions to handle the data. Machine learning (ML) cannot fully utilise data due to privacy concerns. This primarily happens in the case of medical data. Due to a lack of precise clinical data, machine learning (ML) does not appear to be a fitting solution for data related problems. Federated learning (FL) appears to be a promising solution to this problem. In this presentation, the applications of FL for healthcare informatics are discussed. Later, a discussion on the need for FL in healthcare domain is initiated. Then, the fundamentals of FL, and the major motivations behind FL for healthcare applications are presented. Then the applications of FL along with recent state-of-the-art in several verticals of healthcare are presented. Then lessons learnt, open issues and challenges that are yet to be solved are also highlighted. This is followed by future directions that give directions to the prospective researchers willing to do their research in this domain.
