Contact us Get Involved Get Involved Latest Stories Racial discrimination Fellow: “Colourism” is a hidden human rights challenge 05 February 2020 Share jFor Stephanie Sewell, being a human rights defender is synonymous with her mission to combat colourism: discrimination based on skin tone within African descent communities.   “It’s a further level of racism within a race” said Sewell. “Based on shades of your skin, in some spaces, you’re perceived as either being prettier or of a higher social class. (...) Colourism might seem an unusual subject to be associated with human rights, but Sewell said that prejudice against darker skin tones has led to human rights challenges. Sewell recently launched a campaign in Jamaica to raise awareness of colourism and other human rights issues.

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!

According to scientists, this genetic  disorder  is  passed  on  by  both  parents  to  their  off  springs  resulting  in  significant  reduction  in or absence of pigmentation  in  the hair, skin, and eyes at birth. As you  can see me, eyes of Albinos look blue that can sometimes take on tones of purple or  red  in  bright  lighting.  (...) It is very unfortunate that in Tanzania, due to serious lack of knowledge as to  why  their  “white  skinned”  off  springs  came  about,  African mothers  and  fathers  became more and more fearful and suspicious and began to separate (in some tribes  they are killed  immediately after birth) “white skinned” off springs away  from  the  “black skinned” population.     (...) I was surprised why  my skin was white while my brothers and sisters were black.

(...) Skin lightening in Africa is not a new phenomenon. (...) Following the remarkable success of the global blockbuster movie Black Panther, which featured a predominantly black cast, a growing number of young Africans are taking pride in their complexions, coining hashtags such as #melaninpoppin and #blackgirlmagic to celebrate their dark skin tones. Internationally acclaimed Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o, who featured in Black Panther tells Vogue, a US fashion and lifestyle magazine, that “I cannot run away from who I am and my complexion or the larger society, and how they may view that.”

Whether beggar or businessman Pauper or prince It’s “one man, one vote” so we all have a voice, we all have a choice and we all have a stake in our future. 2 It’s blue like our rivers, our sea and even our mountains, showing that we may be divided by water but united nations in history and culture. It is every skin tone that has graced this country’s shores, more numerous than grains of sand showing that a man’s hue doesn’t determine how human he is.
