The Internet of Things (IoT) offers the ability to analyze and predict our surroundings through sensor networks at the network edge. To facilitate this predictive functionality, Edge Computing (EC) applications are developed by considering: power consumption, network lifetime and quality of context inference. Humongous contextual data from sensors provide data scientists better knowledge extraction, albeit coming at the expense of holistic data transfer that threatens the network feasibility and lifetime. To cope with this, collaborative machine learning is applied to EC devices to (i) extract the statistical relationships and (ii) construct regression (predictive) models to maximize communication efficiency. In this paper, we propose a learning methodology that improves the prediction accuracy by quantizing the input space and leveraging the local knowledge of the EC devices.
