About

The programme has a strong technical component. The focus is on development and understanding of intelligent computational processes to create useful artefacts and to better understand intelligence.

The Master's programme in Amsterdam has a technical approach towards AI research. It is a joint programme (from September 2015 onwards) of both the University of Amsterdam and VU University Amsterdam. This collaboration guarantees a wide range of topics, all taught by researchers who are experts in their field. To provide all students with a full understanding of the spectrum, the programme starts with the following courses on core topics in Artificial Intelligence: Multi-Agent Systems Computational Intelligence Computer Vision Information Retrieval Knowledge Representation Machine Learning Natural Language Processing After the core topics you can continue with advanced courses in the same areas. It is also possible to take courses in other AI topics, or to explore combinations. The Data Science specialisation for example combines advanced Machine Learning with Visualization and High Performance Computing. Another option is Artificial Intelligence and the Web, with a combination of Information Retrieval, Knowledge Representation and web-based technology.

Programme Structure

Programme internationalization:

    This programme has a workload of 120 ECTS.

    Specialities:

    Computer Vision:

    The Computer Vision track is focused on methods and techniques for systems that interpret sensory information of different modalities and use the information to generate goal-directed behaviour.

    Machine Learning:

    The Machine Learning track is about algorithms, models for learning, theories that explain why algorithms work, multi-agent reinforcement learning and transfer learning for multiple modalities.

    Natural Language Processing:

    In the Natural Language Processing track you will study the statistical models for complex language processing tasks such as parsing, language modeling and machine translation.

    Information Retrieval:

    In this specialisation you will learn methods and techniques for the design, implementation, and use of information processing technology in the context of a variety of Internet applications.

    Gaming:

    The track Gaming provides you with expertise in the field of game-oriented systems. You will learn methods and techniques for the design and implementation of intelligent multimedia systems.
