Deep oversampling technique for 4-level acne classification in imbalanced data


The current technological horizon in the Internet of Things, computer vision, deep learning and healthcare systems makes it possible to monitor some pre-existing conditions as acne vulgaris, automate the assessment of the acne severity by photo and monitor the skin health by specialists. Remote analysis of the skin condition and automatic image classification has several challenges. One of the most critical problems is imbalanced data raised because the number of clinical cases for each acne grade differs. This paper proposes a deep oversampling technique for 4-level acne classification that enables to deal with imbalanced datasets. The method was validated using several criteria. The experimental results obtained for imbalanced data sets revealed that the acne classification via proposed deep oversampling outperforms benchmark approaches.
