Traditional Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) have been investigated in
the past for skin lesion classification and nowadays their performance is
already quite useful to assist in medical diagnosis and decision processes.
In the field of visual object recognition, recent developments of such net-
works (Deep Convolutional Neural Networks) are currently the winners of
the ImageNet competition. This work extends the use of CNN for classifi-
cation of pigmented skin lesions, by investigating a training methodology
based on transfer learning on pre-trained networks.
