Development of technology is so fast. One of the hottest technology is artificial intelligence. Abilities of this technology is higher than we can imagine. Recently, AI defeated the best human go player. Some people even say that AI will take human works away.
Although a specialist in cardiovascular physiology, our professor, Dr. Ken Takahashi, is interested in AI technology as well. Recently, he is developing AI in the medical field. Learning from him, we studied the basic functions of AI using TensorFlow. TensorFlow is a product of Google Brain Team. They develop technology and release them for everyone. First, we learned about basic structure and function of neural network.
Next, we studied how to run image recognition using TensorFlow. We gave an image of a duck to TensorFlow and tested the image recognition accuracy. The score was 0.89055, which is acceptable.
As we are medical students, we wanted to make something medical. So we create an AI interface for diagnosis of skin rashes. We divided skin rashes into 4 categories: infectious rash, poison rash, allergic rash, and insect rash. Using 753 pictures, accuracy scored 57%.
For all of these results, we can see that the accuracy of image recognition is depended on numbers of training process. However, the most important thing of image recognition is not training process, but it is an idea to make new things.
In summary, Artificial intelligence is an outstanding, state-of-the-art technology. It is still developing and will have great impact on human future. Everyone can contribute to the development of the human future using AI.
Triumphing over the works, We have a lot of fun activities with our new friends: traveling to Korakuen garden and Okayama castle, shopping, rock climbing, cooking, and parties. Overall, this has been the best vacation for both of us!
