Artificial intelligence focuses on development of intelligent computational processes for the benefit of creating useful artefacts and improving the understanding of human intelligence.
The Master's programme in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam The programme consists of a broad introductory part in the first semester. After this you will take courses on AI topics with a focus in one or two out the following five tracks. * Gaming * Intelligent Systems * Learning Systems * Natural Language Processing and Learning * Web Information Processing Graduates of all tracks receive an MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence.
The Master's programme in Artificial Intelligence of the University of Amsterdam consists of a half-year introductory part. After this, students take courses on AI topics with a focus in one or two specializations. The five specializations students can choose from are: * Gaming; * Intelligent Systems; * Learning Systems; * Natural Language Processing and Learning; * Web Information Processing Graduates of all tracks receive an MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence.
This programme has a workload of 120 ECTS.
Past and current computer games are covered with a special focus on game-AI. This track provides knowledge on: * game programming; * serious gaming and simulations; * learning in games; * multimedia analysis. Both human-computer interaction and visualisation techniques are subject, from the perspective of image processing, computer vision, virtual reality, and multimedia systems. The emphasis of this programme is on the application of AI for gaming, such as learning and intelligent techniques, (e.g. machine learning and pattern recognition), automated learning, and multimedia understanding.
Intelligent methods and techniques are of vital importance of any intelligent autonomous system, which perceives and acts. This includes the formalization, generalization and learning of goal-directed behaviour in autonomous systems such as autonomous vehicles, robots, or visual servoing systems. Further, this programme focuses on methodologies to create intelligent multimedia-information systems to access and classify multimodal information such as the retrieval/search of documents/images/videos, data mining, and intelligent agents on the Internet. Main topics are machine learning, computer vision, robots and autonomous systems, multi-agent systems.
Learning Systems are systems that use experience to construct a general model and to improve their performance. Learning methods are used in a variety of systems including:systems for: * data mining; * text and image classification; * recognition of objects and information in texts; * robot control. Emphasis in this track is on algorithms, models for learning, theories that explain why algorithms work (Bayesian statistics, Reinforcement Learning and Minimal Description Length), multi-agent reinforcement learning and transfer learning for multiple modalities.
Natural Language Processing and Learning:
Over the past few years, research towards natural language processing has shown strong evidence as to the effectiveness of models that involve both hierarchical structure as well as statistical learning from corpora. This track studies the state-of-the-art statistical models for complex language processing tasks such as parsing, language modeling and machine translation. A characteristic of some of these models is that they involve defining probability measures over hierarchical structure, e.g., trees and graphs. The track covers supervised as well as unsupervised methods for learning these models directly from large training corpora and provides the necessary background for research in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing.
Web information processing:
The Internet has become an integral part of our society and economy over the last two decades. The way we access, provide, and exchange information has changed dramatically with the rise of the Internet. Within the Web Information Processing track you will be familiarized with several data mining, natural language processing, and link-based techniques that are not only relevant to this track but also to many other Artificial Intelligence applications.
