Course description and aims

The goal of this course is to learn the forefront of social implementation in artificial intelligence and data science, and to consider the issues of social implementation of one's research.
The course is given by two classes (Class 1: given in Japanese, Class 2: given in English), and as shown in the lesson plan, overviews of the topic and recent trends are given by lecturers from companies.

Student learning outcomes

The purpose of this course is to deepen understanding of the social implementation of artificial intelligence and data science, and to enhance students' advanced abilities to play an active role in the real world.

Course taught by instructors with work experience

Applicable How instructors' work experience benefits the course
Lectures of class 1 are given by scientists and engineers of Recruit Inc. and Nomura HD Inc., and lectures of class 2 are given by scientists and engineers of Nomura HD Inc. , Rakuten Group Inc. and Daiichi-Sankyo Inc., about application of AI and Data Science to solve practical problems.

Class 5 Lessons learned from AI innovation, from research to production. Show to students what it takes to move a complex AI project to production. - Share common challenges and the different ways AI projects can fail. - Share success stories with the students
Class 6 Apply Data Analytics in Clinical Trial Data analytics has been a recent trend to enhance Data Sciences capabilities in pharmaceutical industry. The concept, the industry needs, and the available technology supporting the industry application will be discussed.
Class 7 Opportunities and Challenges in the use of Real-World Evidence in the Clinical Development. Learn that the real-world data (RWD) can be extensively used in the pharmaceutical industry for the product research and development. RWD sources, real-world evidence (RWE), advanced methods including propensity scores and AI/ML, and applications e.g., to inform clinical trial design and to serve as external control arms to support regulatory decision-making for single-arm clinical trials will be discussed.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
