Artificial intelligence is the discipline that pursues the understanding, artificial replication and possible enhancement of human intelligence.

The focus area Human-centered Artificial Intelligence bundles the various AI-activities undertaken at the departments, institutes, and labs at Utrecht University. AI in Utrecht has a unique interdisciplinary profile that pervades various departments including computer science, philosophy, linguistics and psychology.

Artificial intelligence is the discipline that pursues the understanding, artificial replication and possible enhancement of human intelligence. Artificial intelligence’s main method is to construe philosophically grounded, formally precise and computational models for a large number of interrelated intelligent phenomena such as reasoning and argumentation, decision-making, search, natural language, perception, learning, planning, trust and emotion. Models designed and employed in artificial intelligence contribute to the scientific understanding of all these phenomena by identifying their plausibility, ambiguities, open issues, and (computational) complexities.
