Understanding and Applying Machine Learning to Healthcare (Live, Remote)

25th-26th April 2020, 9:00AM - 5:00PM both days

Location: Online

This two-day course covers the fundamental theories of machine learning, the principles of applying it to healthcare and how to do so in practice.

The first day will focus on understanding machine learning and how it is currently being applied. The second day will focus applying the technology to healthcare problems, including the principles of product management applied to clinical AI solutions.

Here is a one-hour webinar giving an overview of machine learning and it's application in medicine:

This is a guest appearance on the 'Big Picture Medicine' podcast, where we talk about about key definitions (AI vs machine learning vs deep learning), the current state of AI in healthcare research, whether AI will replace doctors, how to read medical ML papers and how to get involved:

I have shared a mix of videos on machine learning in healthcare on my YouTube channel.


The course provides an excellent overview of Machine Learning for beginners. Each session was prepared really well and delivered at a good and provided enough time for discussions and to ask questions. I would thoroughly recommend this course for anyone who is new to Machine Learning and keen to learn more about it. - August 2019 course attendee
Very condensed and informative. Explained details which an average medical graduate could understand. Inspiring to hear how Chris got involved in ML and currently doing a masters on the topic. - Pradeep, September 2019 attendee
Broad scope, thoughtful planning, informed editing ie relevant and useful - September 2019 attendee
