Course details

Presented by Dr Benny Lo, The Hamlyn Centre, Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College London

We’re now in an era where robotics, AI and IoT play an important role in shaping our future.  These state-of-the-art applications are transforming technology advancement in industries.  These items are an essential driver for customer-facing innovation, data-driven optimization, new applications, digital transformation, business models and revenue streams across all sectors.  

This master class will provide participants with an understanding of these technologies, apply the knowledge and learning experience to design, develop robotics, AI and VR applications and hear from industry experts the latest applications and innovations in these areas.

Delivered live via Microsoft Teams with a total of 18.5 hours over six weeks to include interactive exercises,  quizzes, videos, group discussion and guest speakers. This programme is offered and open to international students.

Upon completion of this masterclass, participants will receive a digital certificate from Imperial College London.
