Preview medicine’s data-augmented future with physician-level data science skills and machine intelligence literacy.

This course has been co-developed by experts in AIArtificial Intelligence from the College of Computer & Cyber Sciences, and experts in healthcare and medical education from the Medical College of Georgia.

By incorporating multi-media teaching methods with small group and asynchronous learning opportunities we equip learners with the AI literacy requisite to answer these and other questions:

  • What will AI technology mean to the next era of medicine and practice?
  • Will AI help doctors to take better care of patients with complex illnesses?
  • What must medical learners understand to effectively & ethically practice AIaugmented medicine?

Learners will engage in scholarly discourse focused on key theoretical and applied AI references, and all will use the IBM Watson Studio platform to run datasets through various AI algorithms.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course overview module, you will be able to:

define data science concepts.

define principles of Machine Learning (ML) for data analysis and visualization.

apply data science and ML to real-life applications in medicine and healthcare.

discuss ethical and other emerging issues with AI integration in clinical practice.
