Project Description

Created a image classifying application to enable users to interact with a pre-trained model which gave them guidance on possible skin conditions. The application is designed to supplement existing government data sets to get valuable insights on community health trends. It also allows the community to engage more actively with the government using a medium they are already very familiar with.

Data Story

Using IOT devices is a smart way to gather data from users to build up a accurate data set. Combining this with AI and other pre-existing data-sets allows for all sorts of possible discoveries regarding data correlations. For example combining our data with sets from the bureau of meteorology or ABS occupation data could lead to new insights regarding environmental factors and community skin health.
