RYNKL, a Tool for Evaluating the Effectiveness of Anti-Aging Skin Treatments, Receives Funding through Kickstarter, Launches on Android
Date:1/26/2016

To help develop and popularize the app and also to create a platform to test multiple approaches to evaluating human attractiveness, the team launched Beauty.AI, the first online beauty pageant with an all-robot jury. Some of the algorithms are developed by Konstantin Kiselev, the team’s deep learning lead, but some are provided by global modelling agencies and academic artificial intelligence teams.

Beauty.AI was covered by Cosmopolitan, Yahoo! Beauty, GQ and many other major news outlets significantly increasing the number of participants and expanding the training sets for RYNKL.

To receive feedback, develop a team of beta-testers, fund testing and marketing efforts, the team had decided to crowdfund the campaign via Kickstarter. In just 25 days into the campaign, the app was fully-funded and received positive critical acclaim with some of the most advanced healthcare and beauty clinic networks enthusiastically supporting the initiative.

“We are witnessing the most exciting time in the history of humanity, when some technologies previously deemed as far fetched, are quickly becoming reality and rapidly propagate into consumers hands. The beauty and the pharmaceutical industries are clearly lagging when it comes to delivering truly innovative and disruptive products. RYNKL is one of the first tools we developed to help the beauty industry empower and engage the customer in product development and personalization. My goal is to develop a broad ecosystem for studying aging from multiple perspectives and developing effective interventions that can slow down or repair the age-associated processes. RYNKL will play an important role in this ecosystem and will allow us to validate some of the predictions made using human gene expression data”, said Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD, Chief Science Officer of Youth Laboratories and CEO of Baltimore-based Insilico Medicine, Inc.

One of the leading European health and beauty clinic networks, Klinikk Oslo in Norway, dedicated to extending productive longevity, has supported the development of the app and will be launching series of applications based on RYNKL and Beauty.AI platforms.

"Beauty and healthcare should be personalized and effective. Customers have the right to demand more effective anti-aging treatments and we want to lead the revolution in personalized care. Many of our customers don't have the time to wait and we monitor and support cutting-edge research in aging and longevity starting from simple mobile apps to research-intensive interventions like preventative anti-aging approach, SENS", said Olav Espeland, CEO of Klinikk Oslo.

The beta version of RYNKL is available in Google Play, and it will also appear in AppStore in February, 2016. At the moment Youth Laboratories is also developing a set of user-friendly mobile applications to track pimples, skin pigmentations, allergy reactions and other facial imperfections.

“My personal life’s goal is to combat aging and develop effective interventions to extend healthy productive longevity and prevent age-related diseases. But most people consider aging as a natural process and believe that it can not be suspended. But they do care about their looks and whether the money they spend on expensive cosmetics produce noticeable results. RYNKL will help with these tasks and in time turn into a very useful assistant dedicated to preserving your face and your health”, said Polina Mamoshina, advisor to Youth Laboratories and a skin aging and photo aging researcher at Insilico Medicine, Inc.

“Machine learning, image and face recognition technologies are changing many aspects of our daily lives. We decided to utilize these technologies for personalized healthcare and anti-aging treatments. Many of our colleagues inspired by the book “Ageless Generation” which presents aging as the most pressing economic challenge and the most altruistic cause, are relentlessly developing new approaches for using mobile devices and wearable technology to advance research in aging. Our first app, RYNKL, helps track wrinkles and tests efficiency of various interventions including cosmetic products, skin care procedures, diets and invasive interventions. This app is already being tested by the the most innovative beauty practitioners, cosmetics companies and influential beauty bloggers”, said Alexey Shevtsov, CEO of Youth Laboratories.
