Explores machine learning methods for clinical and healthcare applications. Covers concepts of algorithmic fairness, interpretability, and causality. Discusses application of time-series analysis, graphical models, deep learning and transfer learning methods to solving problems in healthcare. Considers how newly emerging machine learning techniques will shape healthcare policy and personalized medicine.
