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 from Utrecht University 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:
Choosing from a broad range of courses you can tailor the programme to your personal interests within Artificial Intelligence.
As a graduate of the Artificial Intelligence programme, you will have a solid understanding of the logical, philosophical, and cognitive foundations of AI research. You will also have a good overview of the main AI techniques and an in-depth understanding of how to apply these techniques in at least one of the areas within multi-agent systems, reasoning, or cognitive processing. In addition, you will have the skills to carry out AI research in academic or R&D environments and to identify how AI techniques can provide intelligent solutions to IT problems in companies and organisations.
