Session Title: Using Neural Networks to Help Kids Survive Eye Cancer

Retinoblastoma (Rb) is one of the most common childhood cancers. The cardinal symptom of Rb is called leukocoria, or "white eye". Leukocoria is often ignored by parents and overlooked by doctors. This leads to late diagnosis of Rb in many children, which greatly decreases survivors' quality of life. We trained deep neural networks to detect this symptom and alert parents when the symptom is found. We've deployed our technology in an iOS app and an Android app, and the app has already lead to some early diagnosis. This work is ongoing.
