Internship Opportunities: Healthcare Intelligence - Machine Learning

Location:Cambridgeshire
Job Type:Full Time

Breakthrough advances in AI and machine learning (ML) have led to ambitious visions of how new systems can help revolutionize healthcare. These range from new approaches to understanding health risks, predicting disease progression, and creating personalized health interventions for improved patient outcomes; through to the development of innovative tools to support the practices of healthcare professionals, and reduce spending.

To realize this tremendous potential requires the development of machine learning applications that are effective, trustworthy and implementable in real healthcare contexts. Tackling this challenging ambition is the Healthcare Intelligence team – a multi-disciplinary group of machine learning researchers, social scientists, designers and engineers. As a Machine Learning Research Intern, you will be part of a team that develops human-centred machine learning solutions that can transform care pathways and improve health outcomes.
