Welcome to the class: We are very excited that you are interested in learning more about the foundations of data management for digital health. In this lecture, we will provide you specific examples from the field of digital health to understand where and how data is acquired, which challenges are specific for these types of data and how to address them, and how to benefit from the analysis of high-dimenstional digital health data with latest latest technology advances, such as machine learning.

After participating in the course, you will be equipped with the ability to: 

  • Assess requirements of selected real-world use cases from the medical field (oncology, nephrology, infectious diseases),
  • Select latest technology building blocks to create viable healthcare software solutions, and
  • Analyze requirements for data analysis and processing, e.g. for machine learning (supervised and unsupervised learning, natual language processing, image analysis).

In the course, we will have invited guest speakers sharing their real-world experience with you in interactive presentation. Thus, you will have the chance to raise any questions you never dared ask and discuss them together with us in the course of the lecture.

Further details about the structure of the lecture will be shared with you in kickoff lecture

Please check the course website for further details.


The lecture is a designed to be a foundation lecture for all backgrounds.  


In the course of the lecture, you will have to conduct a small number of personal exercises to recap the presented lecture content. You have to pass all of these intermediate exercises prior to participate the final exam (Prüfungsvorleistung).

The final grading will be determined by the following parts:

  • Final exam at the end of the course (100%).


  • Thu Oct 20, 2022: HPI Campus I, room: H-2.57/58 -- due to the high number of interested students, the room for kick off lecture has changed!  
  • Schedule:
    • Mondays @ 11.00am (s.t.)
    • Thursdays @ 11.00am (s.t.)
  • First course:
