Our Goal

Fed-BioMed is an open source project focused on empowering biomedical research using non-centralized approaches for statistical analysis and machine learning. The project is currently based on Python, PyTorch and Scikit-learn, and enables developing and deploying federated learning analysis in real-world machine learning applications.

Easy Deployment
Easily deploy state-of-the art federated learning analysis frameworks
Strong focus on security in communications and machine learning
Model Deployment
Multiframework support to easily deploy models and analysis methods (PyTorch, Scikit-Learn, MONAI, numpy)
Foster research and collaborations in federated learning.

What's federated learning?

Discover the advantages of federated learning with Fed-BioMed

The goal of Federated learning is to allow collaborative learning with decentralized data.

Healthcare is a typical application of federated learning: while hospitals across several geographical locations want to jointly train a machine learning model on the data hosted at each site, data cannot be shared between them because of privacy and security concerns. Federated learning gives us a methodological framework to train a global machine learning model, by only sharing the parameters of the models separately trained at each site. As a result, data never leaves the hospitals, and training is performed by simply aggregating models parameters to finally obtain a global model. Under certain conditions, the aggregated model faitfully represents the global variability across hospitals, and provides high generalization and robustness properties.
