Google has developed a new app that uses artificial intelligence to detect skin problems. However, this dermatological supplement has been approved for use in the EU but has not been approved by the FDA in the US.

This is a special case given that Europe has a reputation for having much stricter regulations regarding these health-related technologies.

In Europe, Google wants to be your dermatologist

Google has an incredible tool, arguably the most powerful socially and above all in terms of the health of billions of people: your search engine...

In that sense, as people turn to Google's search box millions of times for help with skin problems, the internet giant has something new to think about.

Google is gearing up to launch an app that uses image recognition algorithms to provide more specialized and personalized help.

In a short demo at conference of programmers companies last month Google revealed the service. In this demo, it was suggested that the technology would identify several possible skin conditions based on the uploaded photos.

Artificial intelligence can detect skin cancer and other diseases

There are several AI equipment and technologies that have been tested to identify dermatological problems. However, no AI image analysis tool has been approved for use by dermatologists in the United States.

Google's new app hasn't been clinically tested either, but the company's AI prowess and the recent creation of its medical division make its AI-powered dermatology software remarkable.

Even so, the skin diagnostic service will still be running and away from home as it has not yet received the required license in the US.

Consequently, this technology will not be available to Americans when analyzing skin blemishes.

At the developer conference, Google's director of health care Karen DeSalvo said the company plans to launch what it calls dermatological aid tool in the European Union later this year.

America's Not First Strategy highlights how easier it is to get approval for these medical applications in Europe than in the United States.

It is “easier” in Europe than in the US to get health app approvals.

Google says its skin has been approved with “CE marking as a Class I medical device in the EU,” which means it can be marketed in countries that recognize the standard.

According to Hugh Harvey, managing director of Hardian Health, a digital health consultancy in the UK, the company would face relatively few hurdles to obtain this license.

Usually, the applicant fills out a questionnaire and passes a self-certification.

Google's conference last month came a week before stricter EU regulations went into effect, which Harvey said are pushing hard for healthcare apps, which will likely include Google to show that the app is, among other things, effective.

Previous applications must comply with the new regulations by 2025.

This information became known in blog Google's software and healthcare company.
