Out-of-distribution detection in medical applications

Supervision: Prof. Dr. Nassir Navab, Dr. Seong Tae Kim

Abstract

Although recent neural networks have achieved great successes when the training and testing data are sampled from the same distribution, in real-world applications, it is unnatural to control the test data distribution. Therefore, it is important for neural networks to be aware of uncertainty when new kinds of inputs (which is called out-of-distribution) are given. In this project, we consider the problem of out-of-distribution detection in neural networks. We will develop a novel out-of-distribution detection based medical diagnosis model to solve the issue of the limited number of training data and unbalance characteristics in real clinical conditions.

Requirements:

  • Good understanding of statistics and machine learning methods.
  • Very good programming skills in Python & TensorFlow? / PyTorch?

Location:

  • Garching
