    Kyocera develops image recognition technology for skin disease identification

    Kyocera Communication Systems, a subsidiary of Kyocera, is teaming with the University of Tsukuba to created artificial intelligence (AI)-based technology that could identify skin cancers and other skin diseases.

    The image-recognition system first would be designed to distinguish between various skin malignancies, including melanoma, according to the company. Later, the project aims to provide diagnostic support for any skin disease. During the development stage, researchers are accessing the University of Tsukuba Hospital Department of Dermatology’s database of more than 20,000 clinical images.

    The team will collaborate on research through March 2018 and aims to have a commercial application ready in 2020.
