Federated Learning (FL) is a novel distributed privacy-preserving learning paradigm, which enables the collaboration among several devices. However, selecting the participants that would contribute to this collaborative training is highly challenging. Adopting a random selection strategy would entail substantial problems due to the heterogeneity in terms of data quality and resources across the participants. To overcome this problem, we propose an intelligent client selection approach for federated learning on IoT devices using matching game theory. Our solution involves the design of: (1) preference functions for the client IoT devices and federated servers to allow them to rank each other according to several criteria such as accuracy and price, and (2) intelligent matching algorithms that take into account the preferences of both parties in their design. Based on our simulation findings, our strategy surpasses the VanillaFL selection approach in terms of maximizing both the revenues of the client devices and accuracy of the global federated learning model.
