The diploma program aims to deliver a cutting edge inter disciplinary educational experience to graduate applicants with an aspiration for building a prospective career.
Medical institutions abroad such as The Mayo Clinic, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and National Health Service are using AI algorithms for their departments. Tech giants like IBM and Google are simultaneously developing AI algorithms for healthcare.
“MIT computer scientists are hoping to accelerate the use of artificial intelligence to improve medical decision-making, by automating a key step that’s usually done by hand — and that’s becoming more laborious as certain datasets grow ever-larger.”- MIT News Office.
I3T will explore this intersection between Healthcare and Technology. Infact reports suggest comprehensive technology solutions using AI will help make primary care more accurate and dependable for India. At I3T we aim at bridging this gap so that the current breed of health-tech players will come up with various solutions using technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Along with conducting research we are also keen to ensure that the forthcoming generations understand the implications and are more prepared to handle Public Health Challenges.
