In a collaboration with Stanford Hospital and hospitals in Hong Kong, India, and Nepal, Matroid is using computer vision to push the boundaries of Ophthalmology. We have created a high-performing model that learns to predict glaucoma from areas often ignored by doctors during diagnosis - specifically Lamina Cribrosa, as no established metrics exists yet for this region. We were able to detect glaucoma on OCT scans of the eye, with an F1 score of 96% and similar AUC and accuracy.

Curating Training Data with Matroid

Posted on March 23rd, 2019 by John

It’s the worst part of making the best detectors: meticulously curating a robust set of training images that prepares your detector to recognize the things you care about in the real world. Unfortunately it’s also the most important part of creating detector; if it’s garbage in, it’ll be garbage out, regardless of how state of the art your model is. Luckily, Matroid has a host of features that make training image curation as painless as possible.
