    The development of AI-systems

    Artificial Intelligence is a fast-paced and challenging field that is making visible inroads into our everyday life. Developments quickly follow one and other, and it is vital to apply them to new innovations, such as logistical applications for the railway timetable or self-driving cars. In this Master’s programme, we’ll work on the development of these AI-systems and examine how we can implement the technology for the benefit of society.   

    An integrative and cutting-edge approach

    This Master’s offers you an integrative and cutting-edge approach to the field from the viewpoints of Informatics, Logic, Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy, and Linguistics. How do computers learn? How do they represent knowledge? And how do they reason? These are the questions we’ll deal with in the Artificial Intelligence Master’s programme. We’ll test the systems we develop in our very own AI-labs, where we collaborate with a variety of businesses. 

    Go to study programme


    The Master’s programme Artificial Intelligence focusses on the design and development of algorithms, techniques, and models to analysis and build intelligent systems, and could use, but is not limited to, data-driven approaches. The programme operates in parallel to the Master’s in Data Science that focuses on algorithms and techniques for collecting, processing, analyzing and visualizing large volumes of data.
