Deep Learning Feature Extraction for Brain Tumor Characterization and Detection

Otman Basir, Kalifa Shantta
Deep Learning is a growing field of artificial intelligence that has become an operative research topic in a wide range of disciplines. Today we are witnessing the tangible successes of Deep Learning in our daily lives in various applications, including education, manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, military, and automotive, etc. Deep Learning is a subfield of Machine Learning that stems from Artificial Neural Networks, where a cascade of layers is employed to progressively extract higher-level features from the raw input and make predictive guesses about new data. This paper will discuss the effect of attribute extraction profoundly inherent in training approaches such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN). Furthermore, the paper aims to offer a study on Deep Learning techniques and attribute extraction methods that have appeared in the last few years. As the demand increases, considerable research in the attribute extraction assignment has become even more instrumental. Brain tumor characterization and detection will be used as a case study to demonstrate Deep Learning CNN's ability to achieve effective representational learning and tumor characterization.
