Developing a platform to easily allow the integration of federated learning and blockchain technology into smart city applications.

Lead Research Organisation: Newcastle University
Department Name: Sch of Engineering


Federated learning and blockchain technology are two upcoming disruptive technologies in smart cities. Creating a system which utilises federated learning and blockchain technology however is a challenging endeavour, requiring expertise in both technologies. Therefore, while many smart city applications may benefit from federated learning and blockchain technology, many system developers may not utilise these technologies due to the challenges involved.

This project aims to solve this issue by lowering the barrier to entry by developing a platform which allows users to easily integrate these technologies into smart city systems. This in turn will allow smart city applications to easily adopt these technologies, resulting in secure, scalable systems.
