This paper presents the method proposed by the organizer team (SIMULA) for MediaEval 2018 Multimedia for Medicine: the Medico Task. We utilized the recent transfer-learning-based image classification methodology and focused on how easy it is to implement multi-class image classifiers in general and how to improve the classification performance without deep neural network model redesign. The goal for this was both to provide a baseline for the Medico task and to show the performance of out-of-the-box classifiers for the medical use-case scenario.
