Option 1: Design Thinking for Innovation: Creating a New World
Design thinking is the process of creating new and innovative ideas to solve a wicked problem. It is a “human-centered” approach, which means that it uses evidence of how consumers actually engage with a product or service, rather than how developers think they will engage with it. In this session, we learn the design thinking framework and apply it in a case scenario. We aim to integrate advanced IT concepts in creating better user experiences in a future world.
Option 2: COVID-19 survival prediction using data science techniques
In this workshop participants will learn about data science and work on a real-world case to build a tool for COVID-19 patient survival prediction based on their demographics and health status. Participants will explore data analysis and use several techniques of data visualization to understand if there are any links between patient’s gender and age and the risk of mortality.
