We propose a knowledge cache-driven PFL architecture, named FedCache, which reserves a knowledge cache on the server for fetching personalized knowledge from the samples with similar hashes to each given on-device sample.
During the training phase, ensemble distillation is applied to on-device models for constructive optimization with personalized knowledge transferred from the server-side knowledge cache.
Empirical experiments on four datasets demonstrate the comparable performance of FedCache with state-of-art PFL approaches, with more than two orders of magnitude of improvement in communication efficiency.
