The MRIM research team, in collaboration with a start-up, is looking for a Post-doc specialized in AI applied to the recognition of objects in images
for medical screening. The disease that interests us is manifested by visible clinical signs. The object recognition system will detect and analyze
medical images in “standard” 2D photographs taken with consumer digital cameras (ex: Smartphone), which will be sent to a remote AI platform that will
perform the image processing for medical screening.
You will work in the MRIM team that has expertise in the field of AI and Image Processing for Information Access. The project deals with a major
international health concern with a strong innovative part that should lead to major publications in the medical domain. Through this project, you
will have the opportunity to work on real medical data. This research program aims to demonstrate the feasibility and relevance of our digital
approach in large-scale, general public screening at low cost.
The objective of this post-doc is to develop a system for making a medical screening from images taken using a standard color camera. Given a training
collection of images annotated according to the presence or the absence of a pathology and its level of development if present, the system should be
trained to be able make a first prediction on unseen images to predict whether the patient should see a doctor. The goal of the project is not only to
produce a system able to do the pre-diagnosis task but also to provide explanations regarding how the conclusion was reached. For this, the system
should be able to identify the types of elements or of attributes that it uses for making the decisions and how these are used for that, ideally in
terms of visual clues and logical rules on them. The scientific aspects will be mostly related to the explainability part while classical deep
learning-based methods will be used for the decision part. The start-up will provide the training and test images, as well as all the expertise
related to the targeted pathology.
