What is DICDOC.ai?

DICDOC.ai is a search engine on genital concerns powered by Autoderm skin analytics artificial intelligence (AI) engine. Snap a picture and upload anonymously to the search engine. The search engine compares this picture with the thousands of pictures in our database. It will then give you an output, with 5 answers ranked in order of prossibility of what your concern is. You can then choose to read more about the skin diseases or choose to speak to a Doctor or if it indicates it can be a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), you can then purchase a home testing kit that is sent discreetly to your home. Within 5 days you will have an answer if you have an STD or not.

How Do I Use DICDOC.ai?

Take a good picture of a skin ailment in daylight. For the best results have the area of concern focused and in the centre of the picture. The background should be clear and not in focus. The skin concern should be in focus and well represented. Do not confuse the computer: Do not write on the picture or point your finger at the area of concern. It does not work on non-skin pictures, like fluids or secretion.

Who can use DICDOC.ai?

Homo Sapiens only. You must be 18 years or over. The intended use is anyone that is over 18 years old and that is worried that they have a visual STD. It can be used on any ethnicity and any genital area in both females and male. It does not work on animals.

Why did you start DICDOC.ai?

Dr Börve is a medical doctor, researcher in telemedicine since 2008 and a veteran in digital health. From his research and experiencing first hand “side curbs consultations”, when his ex girlfriend dermatologist attended dinner parties. He saw the need for an online service that could ask a dermatologist from the comfort of the home via any mobile camera phone. He quickly discovered that people preferred to be anonymous when it came to their skin health and also 30% of users enquired about genital concerns. From his learnings he launched the STD Triage back in 2013 that got a lot of press. However no one that used the App wanted it on their phone or told their friends about it. He then launched another app in 2014 called First Derm that appealed to the general skin community and public. First Derm has a global reach and is used by 1000s every month. In 2018 using machine learning (ML) he released an artificial intelligence (AI) model that could screen for 33 skin diseases. With prior experience from his STD Triage start-up, he launched DICDOC.ai .

According to the World Health organisation (WHO) there are 1 million people that contract an STD every day[1] and according to the Centre of Disease Control (CDC), 50% of Americans will get an STD during their lifetime[2] and 1 in 5 of sexually active Americans have an STD[3]. DicDoc.ai mission is to de- stigmatise STDs testing, the faster you get tested for a suspicious STD and get the correct treatment, reduces the risk of spreading an STD. We are advocate of safe sex and the use of adequate protection such as condoms. We want to reduce the number of STD infections and encourage people to enjoy safe sex.
