AI/DL/ML for Skin Lesions Segmentation, Melanoma Classification


Melanoma, which is the deadliest type of skin cancer, occurs when there is something serious with melanocytes which are melanin-producing cells in the skin. This project investigates on how we can leverage AI models for skin lesions classification:

Hair detection, removal, smoothing and skin lesion segmentation [1]

Skin lesion multi-class classification with convolutional neural network [5]
