“Artificial intelligence has the potential to bring about monumental improvements in any industry where data is collected, but few fields have as significant an impact on our quality of life as does healthcare,” said Udacity CEO, Gabe Dalporto.

“By leveraging the power of AI, providers can deploy precise, efficient, and impactful interventions at exactly the right moment in a patient’s care. Through our AI for Healthcare Nanodegree program, we’re equipping data scientists and other AI-minded professionals to use their skills to enable faster and more accurate diagnoses of medical conditions and to build the treatments of the future.”

The course will teach students about applying AI to electronic health records, 2D and 3D medical imaging, and medical-grade wearables.

As with most of Udacity’s programs, the AI for Healthcare will be delivered by experts in the field. These include scientists from Alphabet’s Verily Life Sciences, Microsoft Research, Wellframe, and Genentech.

At a time when most universities have moved courses online, Udacity may be an accessible and cost-effective way for professionals to learn new skills. The AI for Healthcare program also provides key skills for professionals looking to use technology to tackle COVID-19 and other viruses.
