Position Statement

There are a number of products on the market which make unsubstantiated or misleading claims about the power of AI  in its use for skin cancer triage and diagnostics. Moreover, AI app developers are seemingly unaware of the relevant regulatory1  and ethics2  governance  frameworks for the usage of their products.

These principle areas are summarised in a Position Statement. The WPG are also working to develop a regulatory framework to support commissioners / buyers of AI technologies specifically in Dermatology.
