Course Description

For whom is this course

This course is for anyone interested in applying machine learning for disease detection, monitoring, and other biomedical applications.


  • Learn how to process physiological signals e.g. ECG, EEG, PPG, respiration captured from the human body
  • Feature extraction from physiological signals
  • Feature selection for the detection of specific diseases of interest
  • Importance of confounding factor analysis in biomedical applications
  • Disease classification and severity estimation using machine learning and deep learning models

What you will learn

  • Technical skills are essential, but not enough, non-technical and domain fields of studies are still essential if you want to understand data science vs its application.
  • Current and future global challenges in the sector
  • How data science or artificial intelligence would be applied.
  • Data science and the necessities to keep learning for life.
  • Instructor-led online course with guided labs
  • Real-world, practical assignment(s) leading to project
  • Application in biomedical and health systems


  •  Basic Python
