MUSKETEER/XAIN Hackathon: Shielding Federated Learning against Attacks

Details

Prepare your keyboards, it's time for hacking:
First-ever MUSKETEER/XAIN Hackathon will kick off early in the morning on March 24th

The goal of this Hackathon will be to stress test the security of federated learning algorithms to data poisoning, faulty and/or noisy users in the platform.

The event will be managed from three different locations - Berlin as the headquarters, Dublin and Palermo.

The collaboration will be done online, using cloud services to allow participants to remotely communicate and perform the stress tests, without the need to travel.

Agenda

To be announced

- Minimum skills for participating at the Hackathon -

- Required: Solid Python 3 programming skills, experience with training simple classifier models in Keras, a basic understanding of federated learning
- Familiarity with data poisoning attacks, ideally in a federated setting, will be ideal.
- Participants are required to bring their own laptop
