Melanie - The Pocket Dermatologist

An iOS application that diagnoses skin through pictures your skin


We're both mole-y dudes. After becoming concerned about a potentially cancerous mole, we decided to write a neural network that can look at a mole and diagnose whether or not it's cancerous, as well as an iOS application to interface with it.

What It Does

  1. Open the application
  2. Take a picture of the area in question
  3. Receive your results and confidence levels

How We Built It

We're early in the development phase, but the current plan is for a phone to take a picture, resize it, and send it to AWS Lambda. Then, AWS Lambda should run the picture through a neural network hosted on an AWS EC2 instance, and returns the diagnosis and confidence
