Artificial intelligence (AI), a field of computer science, aims at simulating human intelligence with computers. Though AI has surpassed dermatologists in skin cancer detection, it still lags behind various other specialties like radiologists in broader adoption. Newer AI applications are becoming increasingly accessible. AI plays a role in various areas, such as medical image recognition, auxiliary diagnosis, and drug research and development. Dermatology has a prime position in implementation of AI in medical research due to its larger clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathological image database. Hence, it is crucial to consider the potential and emerging role of AI in dermatology clinical practice. There are already studies focusing on various skin disorders like cancer, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, etc. This article provides an overview of AI and its applications in hair and nail disorders at present and its future potential.
