We are experiencing such a profound revolution that it will possibly surpass the invention of the steam engine, train, electricity or mass production in the magnitude of the changes it will bring. This Fourth Industrial Age revolves around artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and big data, advocating a profound revolution that is already visible in the way we live and work, perhaps even in the way we see ourselves. themselves as humans.

This revolution will also affect medicine. Medicine itself is in some form in a time of crisis. As a profession, despite the extraordinary advances in the art and science of medicine in the last four decades, it frequently presents limitations in diagnosis and especially in its predictive capacity; it does unnecessary testing and treatment that raise the costs of medicine. This revolution can go a long way in dealing with these issues.

The fourth industrial revolution

The potential provided by the use of large amounts of data is fantastic. Through the ability to extract knowledge and learn that these data have when we combine them with methods of artificial intelligence and deep learning, we can achieve great accuracy in diagnosis and prognosis. With the help of these technologies clinicians could increase their effectiveness and especially their efficiency in patient care which is perhaps one of the big problems of today’s medicine.

Therefore, healthcare is a sector that would benefit enormously from AI. AI will save billions of euros by improving the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of problems such as childhood obesity, cardiovascular disease and its sequelae, neurodegenerative diseases and breast cancer, among other areas . In addition, it will allow the development of new medicines and the promotion of personalized and home medicine or the improvement of the quality of life of the elderly.

Personalized medicine has created a new paradigm where few doctors have the proper training. Then, the professionals involved in the healthcare environment first need to know him to deal with a very important change in the way medicine is done. Second, the specific knowledge that will allow them to address the generation and development of knowledge related to the technologies involved in this new paradigm. Lastly, they need the ability to create multidisciplinary teams that integrate professionals from the scientific and engineering environments that allow them to address the new challenges posed by this personalized medicine.

In this context, an AI capable of efficiently assisting medical professionals in their decisions and improving methods of person-computer interaction is needed. Currently, physicians rely on clinical guidelines or their experience. Guides may have the limitation of covering only a portion of the clinical practice and experience the biases associated with it. Automatic assistance, capable of performing these probability calculations in a normative manner and with real-time access to electronic medical record data, would allow greater productivity for healthcare professionals. Training for the existence of a new generation of more technological doctors and able to help in the design of these cognitive assistants is one of the challenges in this regard.

The so-called "Medicine P4" (predictive, personalized, preventive and participatory), will be based on emerging technologies such as AI and the analysis of large amounts of data based on machine learning and computer vision. Thus, data science will be routinely applied to information, structured and unstructured, from electronic health records, -omics (genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, etc.) and medical imaging tools.

So this one Master's degree, Postgraduate Diploma i Specialization Courses they are aimed at health professionals interested in learning how AI is applied in health and doing research with the data they have access to in their workplaces, clinical histories and other data they collect in the services where they work. Generally these professionals are used to doing research using statistical techniques and now they want to go a step further and see what the computational techniques of artificial intelligence can do and how massive data can be treated. In addition, the ethical implications when conducting research are of utmost importance in this area of ​​health, which is why in this Master's the students will acquire the necessary knowledge about privacy, ethics and legality needed to write a project proposal that can be validated by the Clinical Research Ethics Committees (CEIC).

The program is designed using an interactive methodology through the UAB virtual campus that uses the Moodle educational platform and allows learning in an autonomous way and encourages reflection on the most relevant concepts of the Master.

All the contents of the Master are hosted on the virtual campus of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). From this virtual campus the different activities that make up the courses are carried out: study of the theoretical material, resolution of practical cases or exercises and realization of self-evaluations.

During the development of the modules, the student will find on the virtual campus various communication tools, such as e-mail, forums and chats. Forums, in particular, allow the exchange of ideas between students and teachers and are a fundamental element of our course. They raise doubts, propose debates and interact with other classmates, always under the supervision of a professor specializing in the subject.

Students will always have the help of a specialized tutor who will guide them in their personal progress and resolve their doubts about the operation of the campus.

Duration and teaching planning

The modules of this Master will be offered sequentially over two years, one module each term (in the summer term nothing is offered).

The modules will last 12 weeks. They follow a chronological sequence of the study topics indicated above, which incorporate readings, debates and activities related to the topics worked on. It is an approach where the student must overcome in each subject the academic requirements (theoretical and practical) of the module.

For each module, 3 face-to-face sessions of 8 hours (Friday afternoon and Saturday morning) will be organized as follows:

  • In the first week of the module, there will be a presentation of the module, a conference given by a relevant speaker and related to the content of the module, lectures and introduction to the practices.
  • Week 6 will be the second face-to-face meeting of the module. It will begin with a lecture given by a relevant speaker and related to the content of the module, master classes, presentations of the work done by the students, internship session
  • The last week of the module (week 12). It will begin with a lecture given by a relevant speaker and related to the content of the module, internship session, presentations of the work done by the students, evaluation session.

Final work

Students will be required to complete final work that will consist of planning and developing a clinical data analysis project.

A tutor will be assigned to advise and supervise the work done by the students.

A final report must be submitted in article format, it will have between 10 and 15 pages of explanation of the work, state of the art, methods, discussion, results and bibliography. Additional pages can be added to include appendix material. The presentation of a video explaining the work done will be valued.

The final work must be presented (oral presentation) before a panel of three members, at least two of whom must be from the teaching staff.

The final evaluation will be made by the evaluation committee, which will participate in the public presentation.

Evaluation procedures

The five modules of the master's degree (with the exception of the TFM) will be assessed in a similar way. The interest and degree of involvement shown by the student (intervention in the CV forums), the realization and defense of the course work, and the result obtained in the questionnaires and activities that will have to be delivered weekly will be valued. The weight of each of these activities in the final grade of each module is shown below:

  1. Intervention in the forums: 10%
  2. Questionnaires: 15%
  3. Mandatory weekly activities: 45%
  4. Course work (face-to-face presentation): 30%

The TFM will be evaluated by a court that will take into account the project report and the public presentation that is made.

Data analysis has been used intensively and extensively by many organizations. In life sciences, the analysis of clinical data is becoming increasingly popular, it could even be said to be increasingly essential. AI applications can greatly benefit all parties involved in the healthcare sector. For example, data analysis can help healthcare organizations make management decisions, physicians identify effective treatments and best practices, and patients receive better and more affordable care services. The huge amount of data generated by healthcare transactions is too complex and voluminous to be processed and analyzed by traditional methods. Artificial intelligence applied to data analysis provides the methodology and technology to transform these huge amounts of data into useful information for decision making.

The Master's degree studies are organized in 5 compulsory modules of 10 ECTS and a Final Master Project (10 ECTS):

  • M1: Artificial Intelligence in Health.
  • M2: Health Data Analysis.
  • M3: Big data environments for data analysis.
  • M4: Data acquisition, filtering and security.
  • M5: Data storage and display.
  • Master's Degree Project.

The Postgraduate Diploma studies are organized in 3 compulsory modules of 10 ECTS each:

  • M1: Artificial Intelligence in Health.
  • M2: Health Data Analysis.
  • M3: Big data environments for data analysis.

Module 2: Data analysis in health

A key part of data analysis is computational learning techniques. These are the heart of ‘Big Data’ as they allow us to go beyond data and information to infer knowledge. This module 'disconnects' from the size of the data to focus exclusively on the techniques that allow it to be treated in a way that allows it to answer questions that are not obvious when dealing with very varied information of the elements that make up the environment.

The student will be able to select the appropriate techniques for the specific problems that arise, understand their complexity and measure the efficiency of the proposed resolutions.


  • Data analysis health environments: applications.
  • Clinical data and their management and pre-processing.
  • Review of statistical tools
  • Attribute selection (PCA, LDA, ICA)
  • Supervised learning: Assessment
  • Supervised learning: Algorithms
  • Learning with neural networks (MLP, CNN, LSTM)
  • Unsupervised learning: clustering
  • Course project

Module 3: Big Data Environments for Data Analysis

The need for mass data processing is a reality that takes advantage of the power of distributed computing infrastructures and the growing availability of unstructured or semi-structured data. This union allows for analytical capability using the appropriate algorithms to draw conclusions from large volumes of data over reasonable periods of time.

This module presents a balanced structure between the most important concepts of the subject and practical use cases aimed at carrying out meaningful experiences on real infrastructures.

Thus, the student learns the basics about distributed processing of large volumes of data and receives a practical introduction to some of the technologies and tools currently used in this field.


  1. Big Data: impact of data on today's society.
  2. Features of Big Data, Acquisition and Storage.
  3. Environments for distributed BD processing: technology and infrastructure (from cluster to cloud).
  4. Processing, storage and visualization: tools and work environments.
  5. Use cases: Cloudera, HortonWorks, MapR, AWS, Google, Azure.
  6. Data storage models: hierarchical, relational, objects, declarative, graphs, unstructured.
  7. Data processing models: Map-Reduce, Spark, Tuples, Graph, Batch,…
  8. Data visualization models
  9. Case study: integrated data processing and visualization environment (OpenML)
  10. Use cases on medical data: Text-Analytics, Data Processing & Visualization, Search & Classify.

Module 4: Data acquisition, filtering and security

The data we work with is nothing but a simplified and sometimes biased representation of reality. Data is captured through physical devices that do not "see" the whole reality but only one or a few aspects of it. The fidelity with which this data represents reality depends on how and with what devices it is acquired. Likewise, the captured data must be processed, preserving the information they contain, for later storage and exploitation.

In this module the student will learn how to capture data at its lowest level, and what types of basic treatments are applied to (1) get them to reflect reality in the most complete and accurate way and (2) facilitate its storage and / or transmission. Since we will work with medical data or, in general, with “sensitive” data, a fundamental part of data processing is to define what levels of security and / or privacy are required and how they are guaranteed.


  1. Types of health data: clinical data, vital signs, event sequences, text, medical images, and genome.
  2. Data acquisition I: signals and systems, sampling, transducers and sensors.
  3. Data acquisition II: multimodal information sources.
  4. Data reliability. Fault tolerance, availability and storage cost.
  5. Data pre-processing: cleaning, enrichment, integration and curation.
  6. Anonymization. Randomization and generation techniques. Pseudoanonimization.
  7. Compression of text, image and video data. Compression with and without loss, quantification and distortion measurements.
  8. Compression standards. DICOM.
  9. Introduction to security. Security and encryption basics.
  10. Data security. Technologies and security risks in Big Data.

Module 5: Data storage and visualization

Part I: Database Integration

In addition to the data captured by medical devices, we will find other types of data that may come from clinical records, databases of other institutions and, in general, from any source that may generate data of clinical interest. The level of structure of this data will depend on the nature of the same. Therefore an adequate representation will be required for each of these data sets.

In this first part of the module the student will learn to represent the data using relational databases, for strongly structured data, and non-relational databases, for less structured data. The last part of the module will be dedicated (through practical examples) how to integrate the different types of databases. 


  1. Databases by data warehouse, basic concepts
  2. Basic SQL queries
  3. Advanced SQL queries
  4. NoSQL databases, what they are, why they are used
  5. Design of a database
  6. Data integration and homogenization, data organization

Part II: Data visualization

Data visualization is becoming a very effective tool for the manipulation, analysis and interpretation of large volumes of data, as it takes advantage of the skills of the human visual system, able to quickly detect patterns, repetitions, discordant elements , etc. A good display is the most effective mechanism to capture the attention of users, giving value to the saying that "a picture is worth a thousand words."


  1. Work with the data, preprocessed and processed to manage the data to be displayed.
  2. Visualizations: types, characteristics, graphic attributes.
  3. Examples of visualizations with different perspectives.
  4. Storytelling.
