The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in medical diagnosis has become very popular for many decades. Thousands of scientific papers have already shown that AI can support dermatologists in detecting malignant skin lesions. Many AI solutions have been developed for skin cancer detection. The famous international ISIC challenges provides tens of thousands dermoscopic images of skin lesions to competitors to build AI algorithms that can classify skin lesions into several classes, including malignant melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer.
