A quickly changing and challenging field:

Artificial Intelligence is a fast-paced and challenging field that is making visible inroads into our everyday life. Natural language processing of the type used in smartphones or Google Translate has become commonplace. Characters in virtual worlds are becoming smarter, leading to more natural, interesting, and useful experiences in computer games and simulations. In California, self-driving cars with sensors and GPS are tested that can autonomously drive you to your destination. Research shows that we can enhance human cognitive functions by directly linking the brain to a computer. IBM’s Watson system, which defeated the best human players in the popular American TV quiz Jeopardy, shows that large-scale knowledge based systems can have practical use.

The master’s in artificial intelligence offers you an integrative and cutting-edge approach to the field from the viewpoints of informatics, logic, cognition, psychology, philosophy, and linguistics.

Students can choose from three tracks:

  • Agents
  • Cognitive processing
  • Reasoning

Choosing from a broad range of courses you can tailor the programme to your personal interests within artificial intelligence.
