FedEYE empowers ophthalmologists to apply AI techniques to private data.


Data-driven machine learning, as a promising approach, possesses the capability to build high-quality, exact, and robust models from ophthalmic medical data. However, ophthalmic medical data presently exist across disparate data silos with privacy limitations, making it challenging to conduct centralized training. While machine learning and AI may not be ophthalmologists' primary areas of expertise, considerable impediments arise in the associated realm of research. To address these issues, we design and develop FedEYE, a scalable and flexible end-to-end ophthalmic federated learning platform. During FedEYE design, we adhere to four fundamental design principles, ensuring that ophthalmologists can effortlessly create independent and federated AI research tasks. Benefiting from the design principles and architecture of FedEYE, it encloses numerous key features, including rich and customizable capabilities, separation of concerns, scalability, and flexible deployment. We also validated the applicability of FedEYE by employing several prevalent neural networks on six ophthalmic disease image classification tasks. Our FedEYE platform is now available at https://fedeye.aierchina.com/.
