Why attend Artificial Intelligence in Health Care?

In Artificial Intelligence in Health Care, the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT J-Clinic aim to equip health care leaders with a grounded understanding of the potential for AI innovations in the health care industry. The course explores types of AI technology, its applications, limitations, and industry opportunities.

The potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to transform health care — through the work of both organizational leaders and medical professionals — is increasingly evident as more real-world clinical applications emerge.

As patient data sets become larger, manual analysis is becoming less feasible. AI has the power to efficiently process data far beyond our own capacity, and has already enabled innovation in areas including chemotherapy regimens, patient care, breast cancer risk, and even ICU death prediction.

With this program, the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT J-Clinic aims to equip health care leaders with a grounded understanding of the potential for AI innovations in the health care industry. The Artificial Intelligence in Health Care online short course explores types of AI technology, its applications, limitations, and industry opportunities. Techniques like natural language processing, data analytics, and machine learning will be investigated across contexts such as disease diagnosis and hospital management.
