For Candice Alcayde, a woman from the Philippines who recently gave birth, skin-to-skin contact was very important. “After undergoing a stressful caesarean section, the skin-to-skin contact helped me and my baby relax and calm down. (...) “Since 2016, our hospital has been practising at least 90 minutes of uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact in the delivery and postnatal rooms. (...) “I was able to experience 90 minutes of skin-to-skin contact with my baby. Having a doctor who supported skin-to-skin care, especially at this time, made all the difference.”

TG-Derma: Dermatology AI for global health (DAIGH) proposal for image recognition challenge for skin diseases – Att.1: Presentation FGAI4H-K-033-A01 E-meeting, 27-29 January 2021 Source: Dermatology AI for Global Health, USA Title: TG-Derma: Dermatology AI for global health (DAIGH) proposal for image recognition challenge for skin diseases – Att.1: Presentation Purpose: Discussion Contact: Lincoln Manzi E-mail: dermatology.global.health@gmail.com Abstract: This PPT summarizes the content of K-033 for presentation and discussion during the meeting. 1 Executive Summary 2     Skin disease is a significant, and often under-appreciated, health care issue in the developing world One component of an approach to better address skin disease burden in the developing world could be to use smartphones as diagnostic tools We have assembled a dataset and built a proof-of-concept Deep Learning diagnostic system for several skin conditions prevalent in the developing world Multi-participant challenges (e.g., ImageNet) have demonstrated the ability to produce rapid, dramatic improvements in image classification performance We are seeking institutional partners to organize an initial skin disease image classification challenge focused on conditions prevalent in the developing world This can be the starting point for the broader vision of developing and distributing free software to enable smartphones to support diagnosis of a wide range of health conditions in the developing world 2 The Burden of Skin Disease in the Developing World 3 Skin disease is a significant, and often under-appreciated, health care issue in the developing world     Skin disease is the 4th leading cause of nonfatal disease burden worldwide Skin diseases represent approximately 2% of global burden of disease measured by disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) Different skin conditions (e.g., melanoma and acne vulgaris) are leading contributors to burden of disease in wealthy countries versus those skin conditions (e.g., dermatitis and cellulitis) that are the largest contributors to disease burden in developing countries There is a sparsity of physicians with dermatological training in many low and middle-income countries Sources: Global Skin Disease Morbidity and Mortality, Karimkhani, et al (2017); Global Burden of Skin Disease: Inequities and Innovations, Seth, et al (2017) 3 Concept of Smartphone Skin Diagnosis 4 One component of an approach to better address skin disease burden in the developing world is to use smartphone photos to help diagnose conditions and/or motivate remote clinician evaluation     Sources: Augmented Intelligence Dermatology, Han, et al (2020). Image Credits: SkinVision; Model Dermatology 4 Smartphone Availability in Emerging Economies 5 Smartphones are widely and increasingly distributed in emerging economies     Sources: Pew Research Center Spring 2018 Global Attitudes Survey; Newzoo Global Mobile Market Report (2018 and 2019); DAIGH estimates More than 700 million smartphone users in just these example countries in 2018 Smartphone user count grew an estimated 20% between 2018 and 2019 in these countries, resulting in an estimated 840 million users in these 9 countries in 2019 Conservatively, there are more than 1 billion smartphone users across all emerging economies in 2021 5 Results to Date 6 We have assembled a dataset and built proof-of-concept Deep Learning diagnostic system     Sourced ~20K of affected areas of skin with a wide variety of ethnicities and skin tones. Each image is annotated with one of 23 disease classifications by dermatologists Constructed and tested numerous Deep Learning architectures to predict disease based only on images Several commercial systems address a similar challenege(e.g., UMSkinCheck, MoleMapper, Miiskin, MoleScope and SkinVision ), but are focused on developed world conditions, especially melanoma We focused on four conditions prevalent in the developing world: Scabies, ringworm, acne, and eczema Best architecture achieved 80% accuracy on a held-out test set of images US Patent 63/034564: "Image-Based Skin Disease Identification" (Pending) 6 ImageNet Challenge: Deep Learning Model Performance Over Time 7 The annual ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge demonstrated that multi-participant challenges can produce rapid, dramatic improvements in image classification performance     Human Benchmark Source: The History Began from AlexNet: A Comprehensive Survey of Deep Learning Approaches, Alom, et al (2018) 7 Skin Disease Classification Challenge 8 We are seeking institutional partners to organize an initial skin disease image classification challenge focused on skin conditions prevalent in the developing world     We can make available an open-sourced training dataset of ~18K annotated images with a stratified randomized hold-out test set of ~2K images that are available for non-commercial use with attribution We can also make available the base architectures, code and results developed in support of our proof-of-concept This can be the starting point for the broader vision of developing and distributing free software to convert the computational power and sophisticated sensors (camera, microphone, gyroscope, GPS, etc.) embedded in smartphones to support diagnosis of a wide range of health conditions in the developing world from heart disease to mental health 8 Thank You!

HEALTH HAZARDS : STRONG VS. WEAK SENSITIZERS / TRANSMITTED BY THE ORGANIZATION FOR ECONOMIC CO-OPERATION AND DEVELOPMENT (OECD)
With regard to preparations, moderate and strong skin sensitizers would be listed on the label when present in a concentration of 10 ppm or greater, and extreme skin sensitizers when in a concentration of 1 ppm or greater.” (...) Other factors affecting elicitation include the duration, extent and site of exposure, status of the skin and degree of specific sensitization. For this reason, the Expert Group considered that it would be inappropriate to define elicitation thresholds as a function of skin sensitizing potency.” (...) Use tests with the products (e.g. the provocative use test, PUT) were originally intended to mimic the actual use situation without the goal to differentiate between allergic and irritant skin reactions.
