Munich, February 2020
Artificial Intelligence is our future – isn’t it? Many of us would certainly subscribe to this view. But how can Artificial Intelligence enhance our everyday lives?
Fellow Consulting AG, a consulting house specializing in digital transformation based at Poing near Munich, has created an example showing how Artificial Intelligence can be of help in the early diagnosis of skin cancer.
The „SkinCancer Check“ app supports the recognition of signs of skin cancer and motivates the individuals concerned to consult a dermatological specialist at an early stage.
Using image recognition technology, the mobile app warns users of potential signs of skin cancer. This also involves any changes to birth marks or moles over the course of time. With the help of Artificial Intelligence, the app can thus recognize potentially dangerous cases and can draw patients’ attention to the need to see a specialist early in order to improve their chances of recovery.
„In the meantime, skin cancer has become the most common type of cancer in Germany. It can be cured in almost all cases if detected early. We have therefore developed an app which helps to assess indistinct structures on the skin, ensuring that patients can consult a dermatologist and start their treatment promptly“, says Dr. Eva Lydia Marcus, specialist for Dermatology and Venereology.
The issue of how Artificial Intelligence changes our lives was already studied by a group of students at August-Bebel-Schule in Offenbach last year who illustrated this using the example of the „Skin Cancer Check“ app developed by Fellow Consulting. Their report earned them the Innovation Award of the Hessian Public Broadcasting Service in 2019.
With their app for the early detection of skin cancer, Fellow Consulting AG have shown how Artificial Intelligence can simplify people’s everyday lives, and that is exactly the purpose of AI. Artificial Intelligence is not going to replace humans. However, Artificial Intelligence is going to support people in a variety of problems and make everyday life easier.
