For consumers, choosing the appropriate products to take care of their skin is not always easy. An interesting and flexible solution for them would therefore be to take photos of themselves with their cell phones and let an AI do the rest.

GRAND-AID pursues the goal of using images of the face to achieve an assessment of the skin using a neural network. For the possible conditions, such as impurities, recommendations for individual care are to be developed by the Clinic for Dermatology and Allergology of the University Hospital Augsburg under Prof. Dr. med. Julia Welzel with the Augsburg cosmetics manufacturer Grandel - The Beautyness Company. At the end of the project, it should be possible to take pictures of one's own face on a website of Grandel - The Beautyness Company. Based on the images taken, a neural network will classify the condition of the skin. This classification shall be provided to the customer and serve for an individual selection of skin care products from Grandel - The Beautyness Company.
