We consider the problems of robust PAC learning from distributed and streaming data, which may contain malicious errors and outliers, and analyze their fundamental complexity questions. In particular, we establish lower bounds on the communication complexity for distributed robust learning performed on multiple machines, and on the space complexity for robust learning from streaming data on a single machine. These results demonstrate that gaining robustness of learning algorithms is usually at the expense of increased complexities. As far as we know, this work gives the first complexity results for distributed and online robust PAC learning.
