IBM testing artificial intelligence for diagnosis of melanoma from pictures of lesions

IBM is developing a platform that uses deep learning to diagnose melanoma from images of skin lesions in collaboration with dermatologists from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Over the past few years, we’ve seen IBM dive into healthcare including the recent launch of Watson Health. From helping guide cancer therapy decisions to simply collecting & collating unbelievable amounts of health data, IBM has undertaken a number of exciting endeavors. In this work, IBM researchers describe development of a platform that uses deep learning technology to analyze images of skin lesions and identify those that could be melanoma. The technical details of how they accomplished this are described in detail in a paper recently published online by IBM in detail that goes way beyond my understanding of this space. To develop…
