Title:

Big Data-Small Data: Image Classification for Colorectal Cancer Diagnosis

Abstract:

This talk will introduce the listeners to the world of capsule endoscopy and its computer vision and machine learning challenges. One application of this pioneering technology is as a screening tool for detecting polyps, a precursor to colorectal cancer. 

We will go over some of the technological innovations which are part of our research.  The highlight of the talk will introduce a novel and general-purpose classification algorithm aimed at directly optimizing for the image classification task. The algorithm includes handling hundreds of millions of healthy examples, seamless transitions between penalty functions and grouping examples.
