Diabetic Retinopathy Severity Detection using Convolutional Neural Network
Department of Electronics Engineering, Ramrao Adik Institute of Technology Nerul, Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, India 400706
Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the most prominent eye diseases and is the leading cause of blindness amongst adults. Automatic detection of Diabetic Retinopathy is important to prevent irreversible damage to the eye-sight. Existing feature learning methods have a lesser accuracy rate in computer aided diagnostics; this paper proposes a method to further increase the accuracy. Machine learning can be used effectively for the diagnosis of this disease. CNN and transfer learning are used for the severity classification and have achieved an accuracy of 73.9 percent. The use of XGBoost classifier yielded an accuracy of 76.5 percent.
