Practical aspects of the project and potential inclusion in I-DAIR is scheduled at the end of the month.

-discussion of telemedicine in dermatology aspect of the project. From January 1st teledermatology platform needs to be operational. Of the 10000 cases collected in year 2, diagnosis will be compared by machine versus dermatologist. For the 3rd opinion (quality control), there will need anonymisation of the images before being sent to dermatologists specialized in pigmented skin. Until then the idea is to test existing solutions willing to contribute, without modifying them.
