Newsletter week of October 3 2020
Here is some news from team members:
-Confirmation of the presentation of the PASSION project at the European Academy of Dermatology Virtual meeting (EADV) during the session by the Pan-Arab League of Dermatologists. The "on demand” recording of the session was done on October 2. It will take place from October 29 to 31 2020: https://eadvvirtualcongress.org
-Abstract on the research results of the run of the diagnostic model submitted to the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting (AAD). It will take place from March 19 to 23 2021: https://www.aad.org/member/meetings/am2021
-Abstract on the PASSION project submitted for the 8th World Congress of Teledermatology, Imaging, and Artificial Intelligence for Skin Disease organised by the International Society of Teledermatology. It will take place on November 5 and 6 2020: https://teledermatology.nubwebinar.com/
Planification of the labelling and training process (data on file). After the training is completed, the trained model can be used to transfer a yellow skin lesion image into a corresponding black skin lesion image. In this way, the model can be used to increase the number of black skin lesion images to improve the diagnostic performance.
-Progress made on both the data collection and the storage architecture. Discussions on setting up of Teledermatology are underway. We are having a discussion with Derma2Go to set up a basic Teledermatology platform. Feedbacks will be given together with informal usage and the goal is to have the system operational and useful from January 2021.
-We updated the team on the potential project with I-DAIR on follow ups. Adaptations to the platform will be made at the same time the implementation of the project is made possible. The goal there will be to have a solid flow of data which can be matched with follow up algorithms and matched with personalised geographical data with regards to environmental factors in the Malgasy environment (weather, latitude, altitude, humidity, urban vs rural environments). This will be particularly useful in the research and management of the chronic dermatosis of the PASSION project: Atopic Dermatitis.
