Federated Learning (FL) is a recently invented distributed machine learning technique that allows available network clients to perform model training at the edge, rather than sharing it with a centralized server. Unlike conventional distributed machine learning approaches, the hallmark feature of FL is to allow performing local computation and mode...
Article
Federated learning (FL) is a distributed machine learning strategy that generates a global model by learning from multiple decentralized edge clients. FL enables on-device training, keeping the client’s local data private, and further, updating the global model based on the local model updates. While FL methods offer several advantages, including s...

Conference Paper
Clustering is one of the widely used techniques to find out patterns from a dataset that can be applied in different applications or analyses. K-means, the most popular and simple clustering algorithm, might get trapped into local minima if not properly initialized and the initialization of this algorithm is done randomly. In this paper, we propose...

Numerous loss of lives is seen each year and the sum is consistently expanding because of destruction, fiasco, cataclysm and so forth these incorporate natural and man-made fiascoes. To counter this we have structured a rescue robot that is autonomous, it pursues track way by dint of 3 ultrasonic sensors in the front. For the processing work Raspberry Pi Model B is utilized which incorporates a grouping of single board processors. The smaller card size is handful as we are utilizing 4wd Car Chassis and a motor controller to drive it through. The robot features computer vision and raspberry pi camera module is used to help with the vision. We trained the camera utilizing algorithm to empower it identify movement, consequently after detecting movement the robot utilizes PIR to detect and affirm human presence. When human life is recognized in a destructed place the web application helps us to observe the live streaming of that found human and the closest environment. The coordination of GPS Module gives us a chance to see the area of where rescue activity is occurring. The web application that is designed by us likewise gives us a chance to do as such. After rescuing the detected individual, it goes on its merry way in repeating the flow of work that is assigned to it helping achieve maximum amount of success and lives saved. The reality to stun is, all these are incorporated in a solitary car chassis and the expense behind the work is insignificant. The reason is utilizing raspberry pi and our work to make a pi camera module ready to recognize movement by help of raspberry pi while incredible and expensive processors are required by and large.
