The medium of instruction is English.
The objectives of this course are to use machine learning in public health applications, in particular in the areas of basic research, prevention, diagnostic process, management of elderly people at home. The course is designed jointly with the course "Statistical Learning and Neural Networks", with the objective to provide students with a coordinated "machine learning" approach that can be applied to several ICT problems; in particular, "Statistical Learning and Neural Networks" deals primarily with machine learning in terms of classification and neural networks, while "ICT for health" addresses regression and clustering topics. Some classification techniques not analyzed in "Statistical Learning and Neural Networks" are analyzed in "ICT for health".
The course is divided into two parts: 1) the description of some of the many health issues and 2) the description and use of the machine learning techniques that can be used to solve these issues.
Several laboratory experiences are included, and the knowledge of the health issues from the medical point of view is fundamental for the correct system implementation. Python will be used as programming language (in particular Pandas and Scikit-learn ) and a learn-by-doing approach will be used.

Lectures will describe the health context and the problem to be solved, then the relevant ICT/learning machine methods to be used to solve the problem are discussed and implemented in Python in the laboratory classes.

The student must report the lab activities: for each lab he/she must upload the report (already partially available, to be completed), and the Python scripts (partially available, to be completed). The maximum grade for the lab activity is 10, depending on the correctness of the results and on the completeness and clearness of the document.
The mandatory oral exam consists of 3 questions, 1 question about the health issues, i.e. Parkinson's disease, dermatology, etc. as described in the lectures, 2 questions about the algorithms and methods described in the lectures and the lab activity. The student gets a grade from 0 to 7 on each question; the grade depends on the ability to describe and critically discuss the learned methods and on the promptness of the answers.
The grades of the reports and the oral exam are added together to obtain the final grade. The "lode" is given to students with an overall grade 31.
The ability of the student to apply the described machine learning techniques in Python will be checked through the analysis of the report and the Python scripts. The knowledge of the health issues with possible ICT solutions and the knowledge of the regression, clustering and classification techniques will be checked during the oral exam. The student will improve his/her soft-skills related to the ability of writing a technical report, and the ability to discuss ideas during the oral exam.
