Machine Learning Summer School in Healthcare and Biosciences

we are looking for you

You are…

  1. interested in learning about applications of machine learning in healthcare and biosciences,

  2. motivated to acquire the skills necessary to translate theoretical knowledge into measurable, real-life outcomes,

  3. a collaborative and creative challenge seeker and problem solver.

this is bumblekite

Bumblekite is four’s annual 10-day long machine learning summer school in biosciences and healthcare. The goal of the school is to bridge the skills gap in this interdisciplinary area — between and among people with engineering and data science skills, those with expertise in biomedical sciences and healthcare practice, as well as anyone else who would, with their creative ideas and enthusiastic work, like to participate in shaping the future of healthcare systems across the globe.

Participants of the summer school will gain both technical and domain knowledge, as well as skills in writing, teaching, project management and strategy development — equally important operational skills which we believe are crucial to making positive contributions in this field.

During the summer school, the skills will be obtained through technical lectures by leaders in a given area, skill-oriented tutorials, personalized project development, project-based group work, debates, talks, and Q&A sessions.

how to apply

While we believe that having prior knowledge in one or more fields covered by the school curriculum would make it easier to follow it, there are no minimum knowledge requirements to become a part of the Bumblekite community and apply to participate in the school’s programme. While we do look at them, we believe that traditional accomplishment markers, such as degree, or career level aren’t the only indicators of a participant’s skills in relation to our curriculum and our commitment to valuing different skill sets and backgrounds, regardless of how well they are conventionally regarded.

The pinaccle of our application form is a brief piece of writing about an idea, project or a challenge in the field you feel passionate about. We see it as an opportunity for you to tell your story in your own words and imagine how you see yourself within our community.

We want that each of our participants thrives in the school, personally, as well as academically and professionally, which is why we believe that your perspective is as important as your resume.
