We propose a novel training recipe for federated learning with heterogeneous networks where each device can have different architectures. We introduce training with a side objective to the devices of higher complexities which allows different architectures to jointly train in a federated setting. We empirically show that our approach improves training of different architectures and leads to high communication savings compared to state-of-the-art methods.
