A Data Scientist & AI Training Program Tailored for the Medical Field
Since its inception in 2014 Hacarus has been focused on providing solutions and services that help the medical field provide better, faster and safer treatments, using data science an AI.
Through our AI Academy program we enable medical device and pharmaceutical companies to learn how to use tools necessary for AI development, the basics of machine learning & statistics, legalities and assessing different AI technologies.
Over the 2-month program in project exercises, lectures and workshops, students gain hands-on experience of the full AI development cycle, from problem definition to model creation and results benchmarking using real medical data.
After Completing the AI Academy you will be able to:
What our Students are Saying
Researcher at Pharmaceutical Company A:
“There aren’t many training programs that cover the necessary elements for learning AI and machine learning, but I think this program was well-balanced including elements such as statistics, machine learning, and programming – upon completion I feel that I can talk to AI developers.”
Researcher at Pharmaceutical Company B:
“I came into this program without any prior knowledge, but I feel that I was able to understand the basic structure of machine learning and the examination process even though I am at a beginner level. While I still have much to learn, I am happy I took the program as it has gotten me started with AI.”

Project with Customer Data for Hands-On Project
For companies that would like their participants to use and learn from how to create AI projects from their own data, HACARUS data scientist team is able to support and guide students through the process offering online Q&A and regular face-to-face reviews including proposals for policies in the same format as project exercises.
To protect confidentiality of data companies that choose to use their own data are given the workshops separately from other participants.
*Pricing subject to project scope and data complexity
