Title: Machine Learning Use in Internet of Things (IoT) Applications

Abstract: As the Internet-of-Things devices are being widely adopted in all fields, such as smart houses, healthcare, and transportation, large amounts of data are being collected, shared, and processed. This fact raises many challenges on how to make the best use of this huge amount of data to improve the IoT systems’ security using artificial intelligence, taking into consideration the resource limitations in IoT devices and issues regarding data privacy. Different techniques have been studied and developed throughout the years. For example, Federated Learning (FL), which is an emerging learning technique that is very well known for preserving and respecting the privacy of the collaborating clients’ data during model training. The concepts of FL and Hierarchical Federated Learning (HFL) are evaluated and compared with respect of detection accuracy and speed of convergence, through simulating an Intrusion Detection System for Internet-of-Things applications. Different kinds of datasets (e.g., NSL-KDD) are used in our work to prove that our developed schemes are superior compared to other schemes in terms of training loss, testing accuracy, and speed of convergence. HFL also showed its efficiency over FL in reducing the effect of the non-identically and independently distributed data on the collaborative learning process.

In this Keynote, we review the current efforts by experts around the world to mitigate some of these challenges. Then, we showcase our research activities to contribute to these efforts and advocate possible solutions using AI and other tools. We provide ways on how to manage the available resources intelligently and efficiently in order to offer better conditions and provide improved services. Finally, we discuss some of our research results to support a variety of applications including how to secure these devices for successful healthcare service delivery in different aspects.
