What can you create?
Combat diseases and pandemicsYou can help combat various diseases, epidemics and pandemics affecting humanity by modeling and analyzing large quantities of biomedical and biological data, developing forecasting and epidemiological models, applying AI to assist medical professionals for quicker drug and vaccine discovery and more.
Wearable prostheticsYou can design and develop wearable prostheses that can help individuals gain partial or full control of missing body parts, through the use of sensors and electrical impulses. You could even create startups that make prosthetics readily available and affordable for all.
Planetary health monitorsYou can use sensors, IoT and imaging to monitor, regulate and optimise the use of natural resources. Using the data you acquire, you can create products and startups that address global challenges and build solutions that preserve and improve environmental conditions.
