Abstract

The field of medical image analysis has experienced a significant shift towards deep learning approaches, particularly convolutional neural networks (CNNs), in recent years. Thanks to their ability to learn features, representations, and tasks directly from images – thereby eliminating the need for manual feature extraction and selection – deep learning solutions are becoming ever more prevalent.

In this talk I will present an overview of recent and ongoing collaborative work in topics related to medical image analysis using deep learning, particularly: (1) tuberculosis type classification from CT
scans; (2) skin lesion segmentation and classification; and (3) surgery video summarization and content
analysis.
