88. Combining medicine with data science – a true story from a scientific and practical perspective
Agnieszka Siennicka – Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, PL
The combination of medicine and data science is no longer the future, it is happening here and now and – what is important – very quickly. Thanks to a 3-year training project funded by the EU, which we are now closing, we had the opportunity – literally – to collide the medical world with the IT world, which resulted in a unique experience. We will be happy to tell anyone who is interested in the common part of these two difficult environments (medicine and data science).
