Abstract / Description

This paper is about classifying blood smear images into malaria cell and uninfected cell. In this research, we have used two datasets which contains microscopic blood smear images and through deep learning techniques such as CNN, LeNet, ResNet we have created a model that can classify these images. We have applied these techniques individually on both datasets and on the combined data as well and have shown that when we gave different type of blood smear images to the deep learning model even in that scenario, model is able to identify patterns and learn features with an accuracy up to 94%.
