Method for the Recovery of Images in Databases of Skin Cancer

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1245)


Deep learning is widely used for the classification of images since the ImageNet competition in 2012 (Zaharia et al. in Common ACM 59(11):56–65, 2016, [1]; Tajbakhsh et al. in IEEE Trans Med Imaging 35(5):1299–1312, 2016, [2]). This image classification is very useful in the field of medicine, in which there is a growing interest in the use of data mining techniques in recent years. In this paper, a deep learning network was selected and trained for the analysis of a set of skin cancer data, obtaining very satisfactory results, as the model surpassed the classification results of trained dermatologists using a dermatoscope, other automatic learning techniques, and other deep learning techniques.
