Collaborative Machine Learning Training

In CACM.   A kind of crowd sourcing of training.

Google Tests New Approach to Training Machine Learning Models  in eWeek  
Google is testing a new collaborative machine-learning training method in which training data is diffused across millions of individual mobile devices instead of housed in datasets distributed across servers in the cloud. Google says machine-learning models can be trained from user interaction with their Android devices using the Federated Learning strategy.

"Federated Learning enables mobile phones to collaboratively learn a shared prediction model while keeping all the training data on [the] device," say Google's Daniel Ramage and Brendan McMahan. They note this decouples "the ability to do machine learning from the need to store the data in the cloud."
