On the opening day Google Ine / O today, the company announced AI-powered dermatology assist which can help anyone with a smartphone to know more about skin tone. According to Google, the project has been in operation for three years and is expected to launch a pilot program later this year.
The tool is to use the internet you use with your phone’s camera. After you have taken three different pictures of your skin, hair or nails, you will be asked to answer questions about your skin, the problem you are experiencing here and the symptoms you may have. The AI model, which is made up of 288 scenarios, then analyzes what you have provided and gives you a list of possible scenarios.
The results will be based on the dermatologist’s examination, answers to frequently asked questions and similar images from the search results. According to Google, the race takes into account age, sex, race, skin color and other factors that may affect the outcome.
Considering hair, skin and nails are the most important part of the body, it makes sense why Google is developing its experiment with a tool like this. However, like many other consumer health-related products, this tool is not designed to change your trip to the hospital or get diagnostics.
In addition, Google has announced a unique AI tool that helps detection patients with tuberculosis (TB) to test compliance. Built on the company’s mission in medical imaging, the diagnostic tool uses a deep learning process that can detect those who may have TB by X-rays on their chest. As a skin care tool, Google developed a form of TB on anonymous information from nine countries to take into account different types and ethnicities. Using a tool like this can help “save up to 80 percent of the total cost of TB.”
Google will continue to develop its own TB detection tool later this year with two new surveys. When it comes to skin care products, those who want to get the first chance can sign up Pano.
