Healthcare UPgraded: Role of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

HelloAI Summer School trains future healthcare professionals to embrace the possibilities offered by Artificial Intelligence. AI already shows promise in addressing the healthcare challenges of an ageing population, a growing prevalence of chronic diseases and a shortage of professionals in areas like radiology and pathology. This course seeks to prepare future generations for widespread implementation of AI, to identify relevant unmet clinical needs and to explore business potential of AI, while also considering the ethical aspects. 

About this activity

After positive and informative feedback, this training builds on the first HelloAI Summer School, which was held in 2018 and provided training to future professionals so they could deliver solutions for the challenges of healthcare and AI. The 2019 programme has been designed to provide theoretical and practical background, and to explore a business-oriented approach – including start-up creation, intellectual property rights training and (bio)ethical considerations. The course includes preparatory materials to provide a common understanding, and five-days of on-site training from data scientists and external lecturers, including start-up leaders, at GE Healthcare’s Budapest office. KTH will join the Budapest event onsite and provide remote access to server infrastructure. Teams of participants will have an opportunity to further elaborate their selected challenges remotely, and to continue their training in Barcelona. On the last day of the Summer School, participants will present their solutions in front of an expert panel of major stakeholders: industry, academia and healthcare providers. Students who complete the course receive credits with a value of 7.5 ECTS in the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System.
