Federated learning (FL) is a promising privacy-preserving solution to build powerful AI models. In many FL scenarios, such as healthcare or smart city monitoring, the user's devices may lack the required capabilities to collect suitable data, which limits their contributions to the global model. We contribute social-aware federated learning...
