[FR] iToBoS presented in Actu Toulouse

iToBoS project was presented in Actu Toulouse, a digital newspaper that publishes articles on the daily life of the inhabitants of Toulouse and its region, portraits, ideas for outings, tips and practical information. The article is written in French.

An Introduction to Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN)

Generative Adversarial Networks are unsupervised neural networks that are able to analyse information from a dataset and produce similar new samples.

Economic burden of skin cancers in Europe

As observed by Dr Eline Noels of the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, the knowledge of the economic burden of skin cancers is “essential to enable health policy decision-makers to make well-informed decisions on potential interventions and to be able to evaluate the future effect of these decisions”.

Exosome micro RNAs as liquid biopsy biomarkers to follow-up skin melanomas patients

iToBoS presented through the poster "Exosome micro RNAs as liquid biopsy biomarkers to follow-up skin melanomas patients".

EPLL: image denoising using a Gaussian Mixture Model learned on a large set of patches

For image denoising, there is an important line of work that uses the self-similarity principle that natural images obey: an image contains many image patches similar between each other. To remove noise, one can look for similar patches in an image and average them.

Skin cancers in Europe

In EU 27, melanoma is the 6th type of cancer in terms of incidence (new cases per year) after breast, colorectum, prostate, lung and bladder and the 16th in terms of mortality (yearly deaths).

Data augmentation for automated melanoma lesion detection

Training data balance is crucial to the performance of machine learning (ML) models, especially deep learning models. There would be a high risk of overfitting when training on unbalanced datasets.

Image Inpainting

Image inpainting is the technique of reconstructing of missing portions in an image in an undetectable way, restoring both texture and structure.

Image Colour Transfer

Image colour transfer aims to alter the colours of one image (source) to mimic the appearance and colour palette of another one (target).

Image segmentation for dermoscopy

In this blogpost we will talk about the importance of image segmentation for dermoscopy as well as other medical imaging techniques. For skin cancer screening it is of importance to segment the nevus from the skin.
