Melalogic Wins Grant to Explore the Effects of AI on Racial Justice
Baltimore City-based startup Melalogic has received grant funding from the software community Mozilla to support development of its new app that creates a database of Black skin issues. Designed to combat racial bias in AI and medicine, the app allows users to submit pictures of their skin and receive feedback and suggestions on treatment. Melalogic also plans to use the app to build a database of Black skin for use by clinicians and researchers, according to Technical.ly Baltimore. The app will be accessible through an internet browser on https://melalogic.com and, coming this April, will feature a calendar for Black skin care tips.
