Education and Outreach

Educating the workforce of the future is critical to the Discovery Accelerator’s success. Educational sessions will be available to Cleveland Clinic and IBM partners — and community stakeholders — on hybrid cloud, artificial intelligence programming and quantum computing.

Cleveland Clinic lead: Christine Moravec, PhD - IBM lead: Joel Chudow, PhD

As healthcare quickly moves towards new ways of processing data, rapid advances in computing technology are driving innovative ways of delivering patient care. The Discovery Accelerator will deliver educational sessions and curriculum to Cleveland Clinic caregivers, IBM employees, university and K-12 students. The goal is to create the next generation of healthcare workers who can apply new computational data analysis concepts and systems to meet the demands of today and tomorrow.

Our Projects

Technical Enablement in Quantum Computing: from Foundations to Programming in Qiskit

CCF Lead: Daniel Blankenberg

IBM Lead: Borja Peropadre

IBM and Cleveland Clinic will develop educational resources to instruct Cleveland Clinic’s key researchers and technical personnel about the fundamental aspects of quantum computing and enable them to utilize IBM’s quantum computers via the Quantum Information Science Kit framework (Qiskit), a programming interface to utilize quantum computers. The goal of this initiative is to prepare researchers to do state-of-the-art research on quantum computing applications in healthcare.  

Pilot Education Program on AI and Data Science for Clinic Students and Researchers

CCF Lead: Neil Mehta

IBM Lead: Joel Chudow

IBM and Cleveland Clinic will launch and evaluate a self-paced online learning journey focused on AI and Data Science for a group of medical students, PhD candidates, nursing students and postdoctoral researchers. This program will utilize IBM-developed courses and educational and training assets. The goal is to evaluate the relevance of IBM’s content on AI and data science for student and researcher skills training and to benefit their research and future goals.
