Course Description

This course will investigate the unique challenges and opportunities encountered when applying artificial intelligence (AI) to healthcare needs. It will present techniques of AI used in medicine for disease diagnosis, prevention, and treatment. Students from a variety of backgrounds are welcome! In addition to technical aspects of designing AI solutions, we will explore social, ethical, and health policy considerations. Class time will take a variety of formats, including lectures, open discussions, student presentations, and case studies. Final deliverable for the course will be a written report or computer program. The only prerequisites are an interest in Healthcare AI and a willingness to engage in interdisciplinary study; no programming experience is necessary. The curriculum is a journey through Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, as they relate to the Healthcare space (HAI). We will look at predictive models, using electronic health records as a data source, and other topics, and conclude with predictions for the future and understanding emerging trends.
