The first step in setting a Federated Learning project using vantage6 is understanding how it works. Having a general idea of how its components are built and how they are interconnected can make the technical setup much easier for all the involved parties.

To this end, we wrote a paper where we describe the niche that vantage6 fills in the Federated Learning landscape, its conceptual design, and its architecture. You can find the paper here:

This work was presented as a contribution during the AMIA 2020 Virtual Annual Symposium. It was accompanied by an oral presentation, which you can watch right here as well (~9 min, in English):
