Western University has launched a new collaborative specialization in machine learning in health and biomedical science for graduate students. The program will enable students with previous training in fields like computer science or medicine to learn one another’s professional languages so that they can work together to solve complex health issues using machine learning. Students will learn to use machine learning in a variety of applications, such as reprogramming surgical robots and developing algorithms to predict and prevent mental illness. Western says that the program is the only one of its kind accredited by the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence. It is expected to start in September 2022.
