Artificial Intelligence is a fast-paced and challenging field that is making visible inroads into our everyday life. This Master's programme focuses on the theoretical symbolic foundations within Artificial intelligence. We examine the semantics of natural language and of reasoning and argumentation. Moreover, we also look at the foundations of autonomy and collaboration between distributed software systems. These are applied for instance in virtual characters in serious games, in logistic applications like train schedules and in autonomous cars. Other application areas are social simulation for policy management and change of behaviour.
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.
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 theareas within Agent Theory, Human and Machine Reasoning, or Cognitive Modelling. 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.
