Healthcare in the Era of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence Course

 

The use of big data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) is set to transform many industries, including the healthcare sector. Along with the increasing digitization of our healthcare systems, massive amount of complex data is generated, which offers opportunities for big data analytics. Such investigations will be able to translate the data into real and actionable insights to healthcare practices, thus provide new understanding and ways of treating diseases, and improve overall individual and population health. Some of the issues that can be addressed by big data analytics include inefficiencies of healthcare systems, and potential adverse drug reactions. The application of AI in health analytics of data derived from digital devices may lead to innovative personalized health care.

The Department of Pharmacy at the National University of Singapore is organizing this introductory course on big data and AI with the aim to inform and enthuse healthcare professionals, clinical-scientists, researchers and students with the fundamentals and some applications of the subject.  Harnessing the power of big data and AI has great potential in uncovering the underlining factors that can aid advancing healthcare practices so as to serve the patients better. No prior knowledge on data science is needed to benefit from this course. Participants will be able to network with our faculty as well as others who attend the course, thus seeding potential collaboration opportunities.

  • Introduction to big data and AI and its applications in healthcare and medicine
  • Transformation of Singapore’s healthcare landscape with big data and AI
  • Learn the basics of “R” programming through hands-on training
  • Expert panel discussions and networking

 

This course is open to all who are interested, healthcare  professionals, clinical-scientists, data analysts, researchers and students.
