This special issue in 𝗢𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗽𝘂𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗦𝗰𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 (𝗜𝗙 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟮: 𝟭.𝟱) focuses on Federated learning provides a solution for enabling collaborative model training across distributed nodes without sharing sensitive data. It addresses the privacy concerns associated with centralized approaches by allowing models to be trained regionally on individual nodes without exchanging raw data. This decentralized method uses the network's collective intelligence to detect fraud while protecting the privacy of user data. Federated learning is also appropriate for dynamic fraud detection scenarios because it allows for real-time model modifications. Federated learning involves the cooperative training of a global model on a number of decentralized nodes, like servers or devices, that individually store local data samples. First, a global model is delivered to every node and initialized. Next, using its own data, each node trains the model locally, protecting privacy by using some methods. After that, the modified model parameters are combined to create a global model, which is eventually iteratively improved over several training cycles.
Some of the techniques generally utilized in federated learning for fraud detection such as differential privacy, secure aggregation, model compression, and transfer learning. Frameworks for federated learning algorithms are provided by tools like TensorFlow Federated, PySyft, and FLAML, which also guarantee data privacy and confidentiality. The adoption of advanced encryption techniques to secure model aggregation, the enhancement of federated learning frameworks optimized for resource-constrained devices, and the incorporation of domain-specific knowledge through transfer learning are the recent trends in federated learning. Enhancing scalability to support even larger networks, improving defense against adversarial attacks, and investigating federated learning applications in developing fields like edge computing and the Internet of Things are key to the future of federated learning in fraud detection.
Despite its potential, it presents several drawbacks such as heterogeneity of data distributions across nodes, ensuring model fairness, and addressing privacy concerns in highly regulated industries like finance and healthcare. The massive volumes of data involved and the requirement for a real-time response to new threats make fraud detection in large-scale networks a considerable issue. To overcome these challenges, need to use some techniques including model personalization, adaptive aggregation strategies, and federated learning-specific optimization algorithms. However, federated learning provides a privacy-preserving and scalable approach to collaborative fraud detection in large-scale networks and addresses the dynamic nature of fraudulent activities in real-time.

List of Interested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Analysis of collaborative model training in federated learning.
• Applications of secure aggregation techniques in federated learning to safeguard data privacy in distributed environments.
