Completion of minimum 2 years of a related engineering programme, this also includes Computer Science and Data Science
The students should have some rudimentary knowledge in programming and have passed an introductory course in statistics and mathematics (or equivalent).
Learning objectives - Knowledge
I. Describe what role AI can have in medical applications.
II. Explain what medical data can be comprised of, how it can be organized, and why data needs to be treated differently (including storage of sensitive data and rules around the GDPR).
III. Identify which AI tools can be used and describe how the underlying methodology works.
Learning objectives - Skills
Interpret clinical data/health databases.
II. Implement the learned methodology for data preprocessing and AI tools.
III. Present results in a meaningful and concise manner.
Learning objectives - Competences
I. Analyze a problem in the health domain, select, and apply appropriate health data preprocessing, methodology and AI tools to address the problem.
II. Collect and interpret algorithmic output and present a conclusion.
The course will be divided in 4 modules that will bring together technical, modeling, and contextual skills to solve real-life problems:
