Learning and teaching methods

  • lectures,
  • laboratory exercises and projects,
  • coursework.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding:

After completing this course the student will be able to demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of the:

  • construction of intelligent systems which are basis to understand and analyse biomedicine systems,
  • data-mining of biomedicine data based on intelligent methods.

The use of knowledge:

The student will be able to use the acquired knowledge to construct different intelligent systems for data-mining and monitoring of biomedicine data. The student will be able to critically evaluate the consistency between the acquired knowledge and the application of the concepts in practice.

Transferable skills:

  • the use of literature and other resources in the fields of intelligent systems in data mining and system monitoring;
  • the use of development tools and environments for computer programming (writing computer programs in different programming languages or using the Matlab development environment);
  • problem solving: problem analysis, algorithm design, implementation and testing of a program.
