Program Overview

Program Description:

Healthy living is a hot topic in today’s world. Many of us want to be fitter, stronger, healthier… Not least students, despite the challenges posed by their particular situation. Intensive study, a tight budget, a hectic social life, sports, exercise and countless other factors all influence their overall health and well-being. And not always for the better. That makes students fascinating subject matter for health-related lifestyle research, so on this course you study yourself and your own habits to create a practical tool employing artificial intelligence to help you and your peers live healthier lives. In short, an “intelligent lifestyle support” app.

Along the way you acquire both theoretical knowledge of human behaviour and the technical hands-on skills, including data-analysis and programming abilities, needed to convert what you have learned into a useable application.

Having defined a socially relevant issue within the thematic domain “healthy study”, you collect related data. Given the nature of the topic, this will most likely be information about you and your fellow students: your diet and drinking habits, or your sporting activities, exercise regime or social contacts. Using that material as input, you then develop an intervention model to address the issue by influencing behaviour using techniques drawn from AI. This forms the basis for your lifestyle support application. Having tested and evaluated this, at the end of the course you reveal your problem, process and product through a video and a final presentation.
