This course will allow the students to establish the basis of the eHealth sector from a perspective of real challenges, as well as the technologies (Internet of Things, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning) that can be key to the evolution of the sector, always from a humanistic perspective and ethical reflection of the technological solution.
The course was developed in the Erasmus+ project “Advanced Training in Health Innovation Knowledge Alliance” (ATHIKA) and the ethics part is thought by Kadri Simm, the Associate Professor of Practical Philosophy at the University of Tartu.
