A survey of breast cancer screening techniques: thermography and electrical impedance tomography

Published in Journal of Medical Engineering & Technology, 2019

This work aims to review the last breakthroughs about thermography, infra-red imaging and electrical impedance tomography for breast cancer diagnosis. Additionally, we explore the main benefits of integrating computational skills. We provide a comparison between several machine learning techniques applied to breast cancer diagnosis going from logistic regression, decision trees and random forest to artificial, deep and convolutional neural networks. Finally, it is mentioned several recommendations for 3D breast simulations, pre-processing techniques, biomedical devices in the research field, prediction of tumour location and size.

A portable breast cancer detection system based on smartphone with infrared camera

Published in Vibroengineering PROCEDIA, Vol. 26, 2019

The traditional detection methods have the disadvantages of radiation exposure, high cost, and shortage of medical resources, which restrict the popularity of early screening for breast cancer. An inexpensive, accessible, and friendly way to detect is urgently needed. Infrared thermography, an emerging means to breast cancer detection, is extremely sensitive to tissue abnormalities caused by inflammation and vascular proliferation. In this work, combined with the temperature and texture features, we designed a breast cancer detection system based on smart phone with infrared camera.

Pkwrap: a PyTorch Package for LF-MMI Training of Acoustic Models

Published in ArXiv preprint, 2020

t a simple wrapper that is useful to train acoustic models in PyTorch using Kaldi’s LF-MMI training framework. The wrapper, called pkwrap (short form of PyTorch kaldi wrapper), enables the user to utilize the flexibility provided by PyTorch in designing model architectures. It exposes the LF-MMI cost function as an autograd function.

A CNN-based methodology for breast cancer diagnosis using thermal images

Published in Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Imaging & Visualization, 2020

Currently, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, and biopsies are the main screening techniques, which require either, expensive devices or personal qualified; but some countries still lack access due to economic, social, or cultural issues. As an alternative diagnosis methodology for breast cancer, this study presents a computer-aided diagnosis system based on convolutional neural networks (CNN) using thermal images. We demonstrate that CNNs are faster, reliable and robust when compared with different techniques. We study the influence of data pre-processing, data augmentation and database size on several CAD models.

An introduction to speech-based technologies for Natural Language Processing applications

Published:

Since the last two decades, the amount of data generated and collected has grown exponentially, and especially through the rise of unstructured data such as images, videos or text. More recently, audio and speech data have gained a large interest, for example through voice assistants. Companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon have shown an increasing interest in professionals with skills and tools for ‘understanding’ and ‘transforming’ the massive flow of speech data in relevant information. Some of the most important speech-based technologies are voice activity detection, speaker diarization and identification, and automatic speech recognition. These techologies are often used as an input to various NLP applications afterwards. This brief workshop will give you a set of basic tools for grasping the main aspects of speech-based technologies and how they can be implemented in real-life cases.
