The SaMD (software as medical device) framework

The new regulatory framework for AI / ML-enabled SaMDs is driven by two main concepts.

Medical Regulations in USA for software and artificial intelligence

It is not clear the allocation in U.S.A. of Clinical Decision Support systems into the category of SaMD (software as medical device).

A new objective skin colour scale for research and clinical practice

A collaboration of scientists from the UK, USA, Australia, and France have proposed a more objective and detailed way to describe the huge variety of skin colour, called the Eumelanin Human Skin Colour Scale (EHSCS) and measured with a simple colourimeter.

Requirements for AI education for medical professionals

The complexity and volume of data in healthcare and increased demands for personalised care means that artificial intelligence (AI) will be increasingly incorporated into medical workflows.

Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)

CNN or ConvNet is a type of ANN that has been widely used to analyse images and sound signals. MLP is not suited to image and sound signals because the trainable parameters are large.

Neural Network based approaches for non-contact dermoscopy: a brief primer

Continuing our blog with introduction to machine learning for iToBoS, we present here a general overview of neural networks. Starting from basic definitions of important concepts, we will give a primer as meant for beginner. We keep discussions only to various types of neural networks. The functionality is also elucidated here.

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.
