In the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) paradigm, a model owner is able to leverage on the enhanced capabilities of Intelligent Connected Vehicles (ICV) to develop promising Artificial Intelligence (AI) based applications, e.g., for traffic efficiency. However, in some cases, a model owner may have insufficient data samples to build an effective AI model. To this end, we propose a Federated Learning (FL) based privacy preserving approach to facilitate collaborative FL among multiple model owners in the IoV. Our system model enables collaborative model training without compromising data privacy given that only the model parameters instead of the raw data are exchanged within the federation. However, there are two main challenges of incentive mismatches between workers and model owners, as well as among model owners. For the former, we leverage on the self-revealing mechanism in contract theory under information asymmetry. For the latter, we use the coalitional game theory approach that rewards model owners based on their marginal contributions. The numerical results validate the performance efficiency of our proposed hierarchical incentive mechanism design.

In this paper, we propose an autoencoder-based generative adversarial network (GAN) for automatic image generation, which is called "stylized adversarial autoencoder". Different from existing generative autoencoders which typically impose a prior distribution over the latent vector, the proposed approach splits the latent variable into two components: style feature and content feature, both encoded from real images. The split of the latent vector enables us adjusting the content and the style of the generated image arbitrarily by choosing different exemplary images. In addition, a multiclass classifier is adopted in the GAN network as the discriminator, which makes the generated images more realistic. We performed experiments on hand-writing digits, scene text and face datasets, in which the stylized adversarial autoencoder achieves superior results for image generation as well as remarkably improves the corresponding supervised recognition task.
