Course Description

The field of artificial intelligence (AI) has experienced a revival in recent years, thanks to advancements in software and hardware and the emergence of a set of techniques collectively known as deep learning, which have enabled better-than-human performance in many challenging tasks, including visual object recognition and speech understanding. One of the richest fields for AI applications is healthcare, where hundreds of companies, from startups to technology behemoths, are working on AI-powered solutions to multiple problems, such as: drug discovery, in-patient care and hospital management, patient data and risk analytics, lifestyle management and monitoring (using wearable devices), mental health, nutrition, and medical imaging and diagnostics. This lecture will provide an introduction to fundamental aspects of the current state of AI in medicine to a non-technical audience. Adopting a balanced approach, Dr. Marques will present a large number of examples of applications of AI in medicine that will broaden your view of the field and allow a better understanding of its foundations, risks, applications, and implications.
