Frequently asked questions

What is Skills Gap?

We are a careers accelerator, running short tech workshops and courses for 15-19 year-olds. Taught by passionate industry experts, our programmes give you the insight and practical tech skills required by companies in finance, science, engineering and many other sectors.

Who is the AI in Medicine workshop for?

The workshop is specifically designed for students aged 15 to 19 who are looking for a career in medicine or biomedical science, and want to understand more about how AI and machine learning skills can support different medical career paths. It aims to give you a head start before you begin university or take any other route into the sector.

Do I need any tech or medical experience to take part?

Not at all. The workshop has been created with beginners in mind, and has been designed to give you an overview of AI in medicine and its future potential, and to introduce you to basic machine learning skills.

How do I access the workshops online?

We use Zoom. It is free, easy, allows everyone to be on camera and mic at the same time, and features intuitive presentation and learning tools, like collaborative white boards and break-out rooms for group work.

How fast does my internet need to be?

You will need a stable internet connection capable of supporting video conferencing. We recommend using a wired ethernet connection with a download speed of at least 4Mbps and an upload speed at least 1Mbps (preferably 3.8Mbps).

What computer hardware and software will I need?

Essential hardware
You will need a PC or Mac (laptop or desktop) which has at least 8GB of RAM and runs Windows 10 or Mac OS 10.11 or later.

Essential software
You will need Zoom. If you have not used it before, you can create a free account and download the app for your phone, tablet or computer.

Recommended
Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari provide the best tested web browsers for the Google Colab activities.

We also highly recommend a second screen. This will allow you to quickly and easily move between the various activities.

(While a tablet, smartphone or Chromebook can be used as a second screen, we don’t recommend you use these on their own for the workshop.)

How do I join the workshop on the day?

We will send you a Zoom link via email shortly before it starts.

Who do I speak to if I have more questions?

If you have not been able to find out what you need from the information on this page, please email our friendly team at hello@skillsgap.tech.
