Explore the field of information systems
We are planning for Ibtikar sessions during the 2023-24. In the meantime, take a look at some of the topics we have explored before!
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, students learned about the design thinking framework and applied it in a case scenario.
COVID-19 survival prediction using data science techniques
In this workshop, participants learned about data science and worked on a real-world case to build a tool for COVID-19 patient survival prediction based on their demographics and health status. Participants explored data analysis and used several techniques of data visualization to understand if there are any links between patient’s gender and age and the risk of mortality.
