Understand the applications, opportunities, and transformative potential of AI in your health care context.

One of the key challenges the medical industry faces in advancing patient care is improving prediction. Enhancing diagnosis, targeting treatments to individual patients, and understanding disease progression are all matters of prediction, an area where artificial intelligence (AI) excels.*

Improving diagnosis, targeting treatments to individual patients, and understanding disease progression are all prediction problems. And the prediction is where AI excels.

Discover the impact AI innovations can have on traditional health care systems and decision-making approaches with this online short course from the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT J-Clinic.

Through industry case studies, you’ll better understand AI’s applications and limitations, examine the challenges AI can help overcome, and explore how it’s already been successfully deployed in the sector.

You’ll gain insight and knowledge from MIT, an institution renowned for developing machine-learning methods that have already enhanced health care, and from Regina Barzilay, your faculty director, who is globally recognized for her work in AI and breast cancer detection.
