SAN FRANCISCO – First Derm has launched an artificial intelligence application programming interface to help assess any skin concern within one second. The company’s Skin Image Search using the API is in beta and will be improved upon on a monthly basis, by continuously training a deep convolutional neural network with skin disease images. First Derm, which began in 2014 as an anonymous, on-demand, online dermatology app, has collected hundreds of thousands anonymous, amateur skin disease images, which have been used for scientific research. “Thanks to an awesome team, we now have a great tool that can be used as a symptom checker for any skin concerns that we have named Skin Image Search,” said Dr. Alexander Börve, CEO and founder of First Derm, in a statement. First Derm’s AI API powers an online Skin Image Search tool, available online in any web browser. The tool has been trained on images of any skin condition, ranging from skin rashes, hair loss, nail issues, skin cancer lesions and genital concerns. The database helps match for similar images. The API can be integrated into any website, app or electronic health care record.
