AI Independence for Life Science Practitioners

9 Days


Cohort-based Course

Develop a practical understanding of the AI landscape with an emphasis on its relevance to and the common use cases for the life sciences

Course overview

Develop into an independent AI practitioner!

Too often practitioners in the life sciences feel as though they are mostly or wholly dependent on data scientists or ML engineers to incorporate AI into their daily workflows and strategic research initiatives.

The reality is that impactful AI applications have been proven to consistently thrive at the intersection of strong subject matter expertise and the most basic of AI skills. This powerful confluence happens when practitioners are fully enabled to navigate and leverage existing AI resources, including: public data repositories; well-documented end-to-end projects on GitHub; and other publicly available and fee-based tools and pre-trained models that enable them to incorporate significant temporal and effort-based efficiencies into their AI-driven projects.

This course will enable life science practitioners with no prior experience in building AI-driven applications to leverage their subject matter expertise and existing capabilities around data and statistical models - in tandem with easily accessible support and resources - to design and execute their first AI project.

Who is this course for


Research scientists wanting to enhance their ability to analyze complex biological data, make good decisions, and accelerate their research.


Medical technicians looking to improve diagnostics and patient plans as well as improving patient safety.


Laboratory analysts needing to accelerate drug discovery, optimize processes, streamline quality control, and better support validation.

What you’ll get out of this course

Understand how AI has impacted the traditional data lifecycle 

Traditional data lifecycles have been number>data>intelligence. With enveloping of AI by data science, that lifecycle has become richer and a bit more interesting as data now tends to evolve form nascent states all the way to predictive and even generative states.

Master the basics of the AI lifecycle

In broadest terms, building AI requires two macro-level steps: 1. learn the rules, 2. apply the rules. Everything you need to learn about AI elaborates around those two steps. From there, we will break it down to a slightly more complex set of steps and activities that you

Develop a comprehensive understanding of the contemporary AI landscape

Evolve your understanding of AI from a rough familiarity of buzzwords to a mastery of AI models from simple linear regression to cutting edge generative AI models.

Explain how each major type of AI model is applicable to life sciences

Contextualizing your understanding of the most common AI models with well documented and carefully curated examples and common case studies from the life sciences will ease your transition into a savvy AI practitioner.

Develop a familiarity of the resources and best practices needed to start building and evolve your AI capabilities

The culture led by the advent of Web 3.0 has exponentially grown the proclivity for practitioners of all kinds to share their work – including source code and documentation. And in few sectors is this practice more prevalent than in the field of AI. You will walk away from
