Title: APTOS 2019 Blindness Detection


Our team chose the APTOS 2019 Blindness Detection Challenge from Kaggle. The goal of this challenge is to build a machine learning model that detects diabetic retinopathy by screening retina images. Millions of people suffer from diabetic retinopathy, the leading cause of blindness among working-aged adults. It is caused by damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retina). In rural areas where medical screening is difficult to conduct, it is challenging to detect the disease efficiently. Aravind Eye Hospital hopes to utilize machine learning techniques to gain the ability to automatically screen images for disease and provide information on how severe the condition may be. Our team plans to solve this problem by applying our knowledge in image processing and classification.
