EIT Health HelloAI Summer School organized by GE Healthcare, KTH and Leitat

The HelloAI Summer School will take place in various placed in Europe in June: in Budapest (4-6 June), in Stockholm (11 – 13 June) and Barcelona (18 – 21 June). This ten-day course will cover biodesign thinking, team collaboration, clinical need identification, basic theoretical and practical use of AI and entrepreneurship.

Today, a perfect storm of economic, demographic, technological, and environmental factors has ignited the digital revolution in healthcare. The ubiquity of AI means we need to get better at cooperating with it. The point is not to compete but to collaborate. Half of the jobs will be affected by some form and to some degree by digital transformation.

This summer school will provide theoretical and practical knowledge regarding various aspects of healthcare challenges, demands, future of work and business opportunities. Our primary target audience is the university students, as we think they must be prepared for the upcoming wider implementation of artificial intelligence. We expect to see improvements in their skills in the following areas: identification of clinical user needs, problem solving, and entrepreneurial attitude. In the short term, we are going to be an eye-opener of how powerful the artificial intelligence solutions can be, what are the basics of available tech approaches, how different clinical needs are present in the world (Eastern-Europe vs. Western-Europe), and what data privacy and ethical considerations are to be taken care of.

Target participants: University students from medical and engineering faculties are the primary target audience of this summer school. However, we will raise awareness of practising healthcare professionals as they can be ambassadors of innovative technologies.

HelloAI Summer School is funded by EIT Health, organized by GE Healthcare, KTH and LEITAT.
