QSkin is an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven dermatologist-level app that can instantly detect and recognize various skin diseases. Once users upload a photo using the free smartphone app, QSkin returns the top three recognition probabilities. Currently, the AI model can recognize 26 types of prevalent skin diseases with high confidence based on our database. With a shortage of dermatologists in Canada leading to growing wait-times, this free app has the ability to improve access to care and save lives. In the near future, we are aiming to provide a more comprehensive and accurate solution.
However, QSkin does not provide medical diagnosis services. Such diagnosis services can only be provided by dermatologists. QSkin is an artificial intelligence tool to assist users for potential cutaneous risks.
List of the 26 types of skin diseases that QSkin can detect currently
•Basal cell carcinoma •Cyst
•Keratosis •Lichen (Lichen planus, Lichen nitidus)
•Pemphigus (Pemphigoid) •Pityriasis
•Squamous cell carcinoma •Syphilis
The dataset feeding the AI-model includes 123,454 dermatologists labeled skin disease images. Currently, the AI model can recognize 26 types of skin diseases with the accuracy of 90% based on our test with over 5000 dermatologic images excluded from our training dataset. For the detection of melanoma, our AI model achieved 96.5% accuracy.
*Accuracy = Number of correct tests/ Number of total tests
