Non-contact dermoscopy for the early detection of skin cancer

iToBoS project was presented through a poster titled “Non-contact dermoscopy for the early detection of skin cancer” in the interdisciplinary workshop Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD.

Strengths, Weaknesses and Threats of teledermatology

This article presents an analysis of the strengths, weaknesses and threats of teledermatology.

Primary and Secondary teledermatology

Primary teledermatology means a mobile dermatology linking directly patient and dermatologist, while secondary teledermatology is a way to enlarge the access to specialist care.

Teledermatology: an overview

The main added value of teledermatology is to ensure a wider access to specialist skin care (“Telemedicine is a way of moving patient’s information rather than patients[1]).

Ugly Duckling and Melanoma

One of the key objectives of the iToBoS project is to educate the general public about the most dangerous skin cancer melanoma and the visual signs that could help in early detection.

Introduction to YOLO Object Detection Algorithm

YOLO (You Only Look Once) is an algorithm that uses neural networks to offer real-time detection. Its popularity is due to being much faster than other methods while still providing a good accuracy. It is fast by design: it has fewer convolutional layers (9 instead 24) and fewer filters.

Anonymization technologies

Anonymization is a process which aims to modify the data such that individuals are not identified (and their identification - by means of correlation with other data sources for example – is not probable).

Quality check in Skin Cancer AI

Skin is the largest organ of human body and skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world. Skin cancer is deadly at late stage when cancer spreads to internal organs. However, if being detected early, skin cancer can be cured with high survival rate.

Round table on Ethical AI

iToBoS project recently took part in a round table discussion on the ethical use of artificial intelligence (AI) in city infrastructure and planning, led by the Economics Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

Image Colour Correction

Image colour correction is the task of altering the colours in an image to match the wanted colours, usually the colours humans perceived at the scene acquisition. One popular way of doing that is by using a Colour Checker.
