The optical challenge of the total body scanner

The engineering tasks of the iToBoS project can be divided into two main groups. On the one hand, the design and construction of the total body scanner, that is the hardware. On the other hand, the design and implementation of the data processing and artificial intelligence software that will analyse all the information (skin images and clinical data) and generate a comprehensive output for the clinicians.

Gaia-X: Hungarian National Hub

As introduced in the previous part of this blog series, Gaia-X is a European project aiming to reduce Europe’s dependence on outside corporations by achieving a secure and open data-driven ecosystem.

Registration of polarimetric images for in vivo skin diagnostics

The scientific work "Registration of polarimetric images for in vivo skin diagnostics", with the support of the iToBoS project, has been published.

Gaia-X: Towards Data Sovereignty

Over the last decade, the importance of data has been growing substantially, with no end in sight. With the rise of automation and artificial intelligence, digital information is generated and processed at an ever-increasing rate.

Sun protection education for adolescents

University of Trieste started for the fourth year a cycle of lessons in the secondary schools to educate students to a proper sun exposure.

Uncertainty Estimation in Deep Neural Networks for Dermoscopic Image Classification (2)

The high performance of machine learning algorithms for the task of skin lesion classification has been shown over the past few years. However, real-world implementations are still scarce.

Why the global semiconductors crisis affects us

In the last two years, the scarcity of semiconductors has become a global problem. The shortage of microchips is a consequence of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic situation and the closure of some factories and companies. This situation has affected many sectors, demonstrating the importance of these components nowadays.

Data Minimization for AI models - Minimizing Machine Learning's Data Greed

As the use of AI becomes increasingly pervasive in business, machine learning models are one of the ways industries can best make the most of existing data to improve business outcomes.

What makes liquid lenses so fast?

In this article we explain why liquid lenses can be so fast and suitable for iToBoS body scanning purposes.

The speed of the liquid lenses

The total body scan intends to image the full body of the patient with high-resolution images. However, the human body is not a flat surface, so we will need to take many pictures of the same region, each one focused at a different distance, and compute a super-resolved image combining the regions resolved in each image.
