Ambitious Projects of Skin Challenges Task Force Group

Skin Ageing & Challenges 2023 International Conference, which will be held on November 9-10 in Lisbon – Portugal, is initiating a task force group as an initiative to drive innovation and revolutionize the future of skin aging.

Skin Challenges Task Force Group will be supporting 3 projects:

1. Humanoid Robotics and Electronic Skin

Humanoid robotics and electronic skin are interconnected fields that work together to create robots that have a more human-like appearance, movement capabilities, and sensory perception.

The integration of electronic skin in humanoid robotics is an ongoing area of research and development. As advancements continue, we can expect more sophisticated humanoid robots that not only possess human-like appearance and movement but also offer enhanced sensory perception and interaction capabilities through the use of electronic skin.

Humanoid Robotics and Electronic Skin are related in many aspects, such as: Appearance and Design, Tactile Sensing, Human-Robot Interaction, Object Manipulation and Dexterity, Safety and Collision Avoidance, and Emotional Expression.

2. Skin Homeostasis in the context of Space Tourism

Space tourism, the concept of offering commercial trips to space for recreational purposes, poses unique challenges for human physiology, including skin homeostasis. Skin homeostasis refers to the maintenance of a healthy and balanced state of the skin.

Addressing the challenges to skin homeostasis in space tourism requires a multidisciplinary approach involving dermatologists, scientists, engineers, and space agencies. By considering the unique conditions and potential risks associated with space travel, it is possible to develop strategies and technologies that support skin health and homeostasis during these extraordinary experiences.

3. Artificial intelligence and Skin Aging

In other words, how AI will revolutionize personalized skincare, improve treatment outcomes, and contribute to our understanding of the complex processes underlying skin aging.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has shown promise in the field of skin aging research and can contribute to our understanding of the processes involved in skin aging. For example, AI can contribute to Image Analysis, Predictive Modeling, Personalized Treatment Plans, Ingredient Analysis, Drug Discovery as well as Telemedicine and Virtual Consultations.


What is the aim of the Skin Challenges Task Force Group?

Our vision of establishing a Task Force Group that brings together experts from dermatology, science, bioinformatics, electronics, and biosensors is commendable. Collaboration among multidisciplinary experts is crucial for pushing the boundaries of research and innovation in the field of skin aging. By fostering a collaborative environment, we can collectively address challenges, share knowledge and expertise, and drive advancements in the understanding of skin aging.
