The intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) is a ground breaking technology that can boost the efficiency of wireless data transmission systems. Specifically, the wireless signal transmitting environment is reconfigured by adjusting a large number of small reflecting units simultaneously. Therefore, intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) has been suggested as a possible solution for improving several aspects of future wireless communication. However, individual nodes are empowered in IRS, but decisions and learning of data are still made by the centralized node in the IRS mechanism. Whereas, in previous works, the problem of energy efficient and delayed awareness learning IRS assisted communications has been largely overlooked. The federated learning aware Intelligent Reconfigurable Surface Task Scheduling schemes (FL IRSTS) algorithm is proposed in this paper to achieve high speed communication with energy and delay efficient offloading and scheduling. The training of models is divided into different nodes. Therefore, the trained model will decide the IRSTS configuration that best meets the goals in terms of communication rate. Multiple local models trained with the local healthcare fog cloud network for each workload using federated learning (FL) to generate a global model. Then, each trained model shared its initial configuration with the global model for the next training round. Each application’s healthcare data is handled and processed locally during the training process. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm’s achievable rate output can effectively approach centralized machine learning (ML) while meeting the study’s energy and delay objectives.
