Within the framework of the agreement, it is planned to involve SberMedIA experts in the preparation of online hackathons, the development of student research activities in the field of advanced medical technologies, as well as joint seminars, lectures, conferences and round tables. Within the framework of cooperation, students of the master's degree program "Applied Data Analysis in Medicine" will be offered practical tasks that will help specialists understand how medical services are created and work. 90 students study at the stream, of which more than half (55%) have a medical degree.
Daria Igorevna Grits, Director of Education Digitalization at MIPT: "The prospects for the use of big data analysis and artificial intelligence technologies in the field of medicine are striking in scale. According to analysts' forecasts, in the near future, the amount of information created only by medical equipment will increase by 50 times. The amount of data is growing, and there are not enough specialists who know how to work with them in this area, on the contrary.
In 2022, MIPT launched a unique higher education program to develop the necessary in-depth digital competencies for medical-related specialists. Most of the students are already practicing experts from medical and related fields. SberMedIA develops, pilots and implements AI services in medical institutions across the country, accumulates expertise for the use and development of breakthrough solutions in this area. I am sure that our cooperation will contribute to the promotion of this promising industry in Russia, and will allow future experts to get acquainted with the potential of using advanced technologies."
