dc.description.abstract This paper describes a novel learning methodology used to analyze bio-materials. The premise of this research is to help pathologists quickly identify anomalous cells in a cost efficient method. Skilled pathologists must methodically, efficiently and carefully analyze manually histopathologic materials for the presence, amount and degree of malignancy and/or other disease states. The prolonged attention required to accomplish this task induces fatigue that may result in a higher rate of diagnostic errors. In addition, automated image analysis systems to date lack a sufficiently intelligent means of identifying even the most general regions of interest in tissue based studies and this shortfall greatly limits their utility. An intelligent data understanding system that could quickly and accurately identify diseased tissues and/or could choose regions of interest would be expected to increase the accuracy of diagnosis and usher in truly automated tissue based image analysis. en
