Biomedical data in the form of images, videos or other unstructured signals are continuously collected by clinicians, such as radiologists, dermatologists or ophthalmologists, life science researchers and increasingly by ourselves with our personal devices. Tools able to distill quantitative actionable information from these data are essential to generate phenotypes, aid diagnosis, screening, treatment and automate repetitive tasks. In the era of personalized medicine and big data, they have become an urgent medical need. In this course, you will be introduced to the essential pattern recognitions techniques to build and evaluate such tools. We will be covering the basics of image/signal processing, computer vision and applied machine learning with hands on examples relevant to biomedical applications.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will:
