Federated learning holds great promise in learning from fragmented sensitive data and has revolutionized how machine learning models are trained. This talk provides a systematic overview and detailed taxonomy of federated learning. We investigate the existing security challenges in federated learning and provide a comprehensive overview of established defense techniques for data poisoning, inference at- tacks, and model poisoning attacks. The work also presents an overview of current training challenges for federated learn- ing, focusing on handling non-i.i.d. data, high dimensionality issues, heterogeneous architecture, and discusses several solutions for the associated challenges. Finally, we discuss the remaining challenges in managing federated learning training and suggest focused research directions to address the open questions. Potential candidate areas for federated learning, including IoT ecosystem, healthcare applications, are discussed with a particular focus on banking and financial domains.
