One step closer to a perfect complexion with AI

March 17th, 2023

With the help of AI, your selfie can do more for you than earn likes on social media.

Skin Detective is an AI-powered mobile app capable of automatically analysing skin conditions and skin diseases and connecting the user with a dermatologist for remote diagnosis. The core AI system of Skin Detective is developed based on the results of clinical research by the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, International University, Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City and doctors from the Ho Chi Minh City University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

Using Skin Detective is really easy. Users just need to take some selfies with their phone camera and AI will analyse the images to generate results. Users can then connect and chat with a dermatologist of their choice on the app for specific skin care and treatment advices.

With the current situation of air and water pollution in Vietnam, skin problems will only become more common. Meanwhile, Vietnam is facing a shortage of physicians with only 11 physicians for every 10,000 population. Apps like Skin Detective and application of AI in telehealth in general can help address this issue.

Deemed one of the most commercially viable AI initiatives at AI4VN 2022, Vietnam’s leading platform for AI tech, Skin Detective earned some well-deserved attention alongside funding from Aus4Innovation to provide proper and timely care for people in need.
