Clinical issue : accelerate and simplify the work of technicians
Technical issue : automate the process of recognition of diatoms
The diagnosis of drowning is made by the detection of diatoms.
These diatoms are unicellular bodies which resist decomposition and which so find themselves in fabrics after the death.
The purpose of the project is to use this database to establish a model allowing then the software to recognize a diatom in an image which we supply it..
The project will have to answer specifications whose reliability is one of the key points : false negatives are unacceptable in view of the use of the data in a legal framework.
