The purpose of this project is trying to detect tumors by computer based on deep learning techniques when a picture of a tumor is shown. In this research, a fast and accurate colon cancer detection is proposed, which means this research can dramatically increase the speed of diagnosis and can also improve the accuracy of confirming a diagnosis. During the experiment, a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) structure akin to that of VGG Net and ResNet was built. A GPU computer with two 2080 Ti GPUs was used for training. The result of training produced 94% accuracy with a loss lower than 10%. Respectively, this result improved over 10% of accuracy compared to the detection by human eyes. Lastly, this program can be used by any computer to predict the tumor, which allows it transits to a practical tool in the future.
