A Hands-On Introduction to Data Science in Health
An increasing volume of data is becoming available in biomedicine and healthcare, from genomic data, to electronic patient records and data collected by wearable devices. Recent advances in data science allow us to harness the power of such data, leading to precision medicine, AI diagnostics, data-driven drug discovery and disease understanding, among others.
This interactive, practical workshop includes a wide range of activities, from group discussions and case studies, to talks and pair programming activities. We will be using the free online course Data Science in Stratified Healthcare and Precision Medicine (https://www.coursera.org/learn/datascimed/) to guide these activities, and participants interested in learning more about data science in health can continue the course in their own time.
Sponsored by the Data Science, Technology and Innovation online learning programme and the Bayes Centre this DataFest19 fringe event will explore these topics while getting a practical, hands-on taster of data science in health.
