Tele-dermatology leader First Derm has launched on Telegram, a messenger app, a new search engine of the most common skin diseases. Called Autoderm, the skin search engine uses artificial intelligence to provide accurate search results on the 43 skin diseases that represent 90 percent of the most commonly seen skin ailments. “It is very easy to use—from just a picture, the AI performs a search within a second,” says Alexander Börve, M.D., CEO of First Derm. “Our bots are effectively an inverse internet search for a skin disease.” For each submitted photograph, Autoderm produces five search results, all ranked in order of what the AI model suspects the disease to be. Users can then either do more research based on those results or receive confirmation from a professional through First Derm’s tele-dermatology service.
