### Course Description

In the next 5 years, machine learning will play an increasingly important role in healthcare. Whether it's aggregating new results in medical journals using Natural Language Processing, predicting diseases using Time-Series Analysis, or detecting cancer from MRIs using Machine Vision, healthcare is on the verge of a big data revolution. The purpose of this course will be to introduce you to these topics and more. We start from the basics of machine learning and guide you through how to apply these techniques to real-world healthcare applications. Whilst this course uses healthcare use cases as examples, the techniques are general and apply to a wide range of industries and scientific fields.
