Clients and architects drift apart due to a lack of communication (Angral, 2019). Their relationships deteriorate. Relationship quality is seen as a key determinant for (dis-)satisfaction with clients. So, a lack of communication induces less successful projects. Architects could be more client oriented. Furthermore, it seems that architects...

Federated learning (FL) enables collaborative learning between parties, called clients, without sharing the original and potentially sensitive data. To ensure fast convergence in the presence of such heterogeneous clients, it is imperative to timely select clients who can effectively contribute to learning. A realistic but overlooked case of...

Classical federated learning approaches incur significant performance degradation in the presence of non-independent and identically distributed (non-IID) client data.

The relationship between creative agencies and their clients is a difficult one to manage. For clients, the methodologies and processes applied by creative agencies often lack sufficient transparency; so much so that working together needs to be subject to a carefully thought-out process. While agencies recognize the importance of such...
