Completion of minimum 2 years of a related engineering programme at university level (equivalent to 120 ECTS), this also includes Computer Science and Data Science.
The students should have basic programming experience 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:
Module 1 - Introduction to health data
- Course introduction (AI and Machine Learning Applied in Health)
- How is data collected and stored?
- GDPR and ethical considerations
- Data cleaning, data preprocessing, data visualization
Module 2 - Using AI for disease diagnosis and early detection
- Hands-on practice: “Using medical history data to predict prostate cancer metastasis”
Module 3 – Using AI for patient monitoring based on EEG recordings
- Hands-on practice: “Seizure detection for patients with generalized epilepsy”
Module 4 – Using AI for video feed based medical device development
- Hands-on practice: “Use of wireless capsule endoscopy for detecting colorectal cancer”Exercises are performed using standard tools in the corresponding fields, I.e., in R and Python.
