Abstract

Breast Cancer is one of the most common types of cancer amongst women, and early detection of carcinogenic tissue from histology images can go a long way in effective treatment as well. Recent approaches to solving this problem of classification of tissues utilize heavy deep learning-based architectures which takes higher inference time and storage space for model parameters. In this paper, we propose a CNN architecture with a lesser number of parameters that can be effectively deployed on a resource-constrained device, with the utilization of the Knowledge Distillation technique. We evaluate our approach on High-Resolution Breast Cancer histology slides of the BACH 2018 dataset.
