2019 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
Tuberculosis (TB) still remains in our days a persistent threat and a leading cause of death worldwide. The different types of TB require different treatments, usually with antibiotics, and therefore the detection of the TB type and the evaluation of the severity stage are very important. In the ImageCLEF 2019 Tuberculosis, our group submitted a solution that addresses the problem of tuberculosis' severity prediction in low-resource environments by attempting to minimize the information
