Abstract

The skin cancer detection process is complex and time-consuming. The rise of machine learning led to the invention of skin detection models. However, the models are rarely used in the real world and the few implementations are slow and not lightweight. This paper sought to solve the issue by developing a lightweight mobile application that runs diagnosis on the cloud, allowing users to assess their conditions preliminarily. Convolutional Neural Network as a powerful type of deep learning methods was considered to recognize the skin cancer in this study. Datasets collected from a large skin cancer dataset called HAM10000 was employed to verify the proposed method. Based on convolutional neural network, an application using WeChat platform was able run a skin-cancer detection model with 0.81 test accuracy in the cloud to diagnose a user’s image in under 20 seconds while maintaining the app’s size under two megabytes, achieving ease of access, lightweight, and speed.
