Throughout this course, you'll be asked your opinion on what this digital transformation in healthcare means to you, and give you the opportunity to exchange thoughts and learn from each other. We have split this week into three areas. Firstly, we will start by explaining some key concepts of AI to introduce you to the topic. We then explore ways in which this could impact your own area and start the dialogue to exchange views.
