Educational program 2024

The aim of the Summer School ‘Data Science and AI in Health’ is to introduce young, enthusiastic researchers to the principles of data science and AI in healthcare and clinical research. Participants will be introduced to various aspects of data science, such as setting up and implementing a project. This includes both the collection and cleaning of data and the practical conduct of an initial (machine learning) analysis of the collected data. The data science assignments will be executed in an online web environment (Jupyter Notebooks).
