Workshop 26: Exploration of Federated Data Mining in Autonomous Transportation System

Keywords: Federated Learning, Data Mining, Autonomous Transportation System, Internet of Things

With the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT),Artificial Intelligence (AI), EdgeComputing, and other advanced technologies, an emerging paradigm, called Autonomous Transportation System (ATS), has drawn much attention since it can transport people and cargoes autonomously and intelligently without human intervention. Moreover, to utilize massive data generated by distributed data sources of ATS, a novel decentralized data mining paradigm called Federated Data Mining (FDM) is applied to leverage ATS. FDM can collaborate with multiple ends and learn valuable knowledge in a privacy-preserving way, which provides sound solutions for ATS. However, several challenges, including architecture design, data heterogeneity, and system security, remain open questions to be solved urgently.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the areas of federated learning, data mining, and ATS. We expect to encourage original and interesting work dedicated to exploring FDM in ATS. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
Algorithms, models, and methods for FDM 
Novel architecture which enables FMD in ATS
Micro-services or applications of ATS provided by FDM
Security and privacy issues on FDM and ATS
