A Deep Learning Interpretable Classifier for Diabetic Retinopathy Disease Grading

21 Dec 2017  ·  Jordi de la Torre, Aida Valls, Domenec Puig ·

Deep neural network models have been proven to be very successful in image classification tasks, also for medical diagnosis, but their main concern is its lack of interpretability. They use to work as intuition machines with high statistical confidence but unable to give interpretable explanations about the reported results... The vast amount of parameters of these models make difficult to infer a rationale interpretation from them. In this paper we present a diabetic retinopathy interpretable classifier able to classify retine images into the different levels of disease severity and of explaining its results by assigning a score for every point in the hidden and input space, evaluating its contribution to the final classification in a linear way. The generated visual maps can be interpreted by an expert in order to compare its own knowledge with the interpretation given by the model. read more
