Plasmodium is Machine Learning freeware mobile app for Plasmodium detection.

This app uses Tensorflow Object Detection API and Tensorflow Lite for developing machine learning mobile app. The ssd_mobilenet_v2_quantized_300x300_coco model is used for transfer training with dataset from J.A. Quinn. The performance of this model is evaluated by COCO detection metrics. The scores are as follow:

Mean Average Precision (mAP) @[ IoU=0.50:0.95 ] = 0.2224

Mean Average Precision (mAP) @[ IoU=0.50 ] = 0.6461

Mean Average Precision (mAP) @[ IoU=0.75 ] = 0.0996

You can use this app only for helping malaria detection. It CAN'T be used for diagnosis without any supervision from medical expert.
