Predictions using CNNs and MLPs for medical research

  • Donald J. Norris


In the previous chapter, I introduced you to how both ANNs and CNNs are used to make predictions. The predictions discussed were strictly related to numerical datasets and did not directly involve any input images. In this chapter, I will discuss how to use images with CNNs to make medical diagnosis predictions. Currently, this area of research is extremely important, and many AI researchers are pursuing viable lines of research to advance the subject matter. In truth, I added one more data-oriented MLP demonstration at the chapter's end to hopefully show you that data-only projects are still relevant in this area.
