Disruptive technologies: AI in the Health Industry

Prince Canuma (~Blaizzy)


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to stay and it is all around us. We use it every day and sometimes without knowing. There is a lot of life-saving and improving solutions that can be developed with this technology. The impact of using this technology to develop humanitarian areas can have a multiplier effect in developing countries. By leveraging the power of AI(a sub-field of AI and Machine learning called Deep Learning), businesses, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and governments can solve life-threatening, economical and technological problems that will improve the health, wealth and livelihood of local communities in developed and developing countries.

This talk aims to show the building process of a Convolutional Neural Network(ConvNets) to classify skin diseases using Google's open source deep learning framework TensorFlow 2.0 and taking advantage of standardization of Keras API inside Tensorflow core to build custom models and layers easily.

Python modules:

  • TensorFlow 2.0

    - Keras (customization)
         - Model
         - Layers
         - loss
         - Callbacks
  • Matplotlib

  • Pandas

  • Python debugger

Outline -

  • Self Introduction - I will be giving welcome notes and introduce myself to everyone.

  • What is DL?

  • Introduction to and working of a CNN and its uses in the field of computer-vision.

  • How to build custom Convolution Neural Networks(CNN) Architectures with TensorFlow 2.0.

  • Code walk through to a CNN project build from scratch using Tensorflow and transfer-learning to accurately classify and locate objects in an image.

  • A live demo.

  • Conclusion: Where are we currently are regarding AI tools that can impact the health industry and where we are heading as we adopt this industry revolutionizing technology. Sharing resources.
