NOTE: FedJAX is not an officially supported Google product. FedJAX is still in the early stages and the API will likely continue to change.

FedJAX is a JAX-based open source library for Federated Learning simulations that emphasizes ease-of-use in research. With its simple primitives for implementing federated learning algorithms, prepackaged datasets, models and algorithms, and fast simulation speed, FedJAX aims to make developing and evaluating federated algorithms faster and easier for researchers. FedJAX works on accelerators (GPU and TPU) without much additional effort. Additional details and benchmarks can be found in our paper.

You will need a moderately recent version of Python. Please check the PyPI page for the up to date version requirement.

First, install JAX. For a CPU-only version:

```
pip install --upgrade pip
pip install --upgrade jax jaxlib # CPU-only version
```

For other devices (e.g. GPU), follow these instructions.

Then, install FedJAX from PyPI:

```
pip install fedjax
```

Or, to upgrade to the latest version of FedJAX:

```
pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/google/fedjax.git
```

Below is a simple example to verify FedJAX is installed correctly.

```
import fedjax
import jax
import jax.numpy as jnp
import numpy as np
# {'client_id': client_dataset}.
fd = fedjax.InMemoryFederatedData({
'a': {
'x': np.array([1.0, 2.0, 3.0]),
'y': np.array([2.0, 4.0, 6.0]),
},
'b': {
'x': np.array([4.0]),
'y': np.array([12.0])
}
})
# Initial model parameters.
params = jnp.array(0.5)
# Mean squared error.
mse_loss = lambda params, batch: jnp.mean(
(jnp.dot(batch['x'], params) - batch['y'])**2)
# Loss for clients 'a' and 'b'.
print(f"client a loss = {mse_loss(params, fd.get_client('a').all_examples())}")
print(f"client b loss = {mse_loss(params, fd.get_client('b').all_examples())}")
```
