Description:

What is intelligent behaviour? How can computers recognize faces and objects? In this programme you will learn how to design and implement intelligent systems.

The core topics in the Master's programme Artificial Intelligence are: Computational Intelligence, Robotics and Multi-Agent Systems.

Computational Intelligence

Automated translation between languages, face recognition, automated satellite image processing, or self-driving cars are all based on 'intelligent' computer algorithms. These algorithms are based on insights obtained in the cognitive and neurosciences on the one hand and are guided by fundamental principles of statistics, formal logic and dynamical systems theory on the other hand.

The courses taught in this specialization cover cornerstone topics of this interdisciplinary field, including machine learning, artificial neural networks and pattern recognition.

Robotics

A robot taking samples and collecting information on the moon is an example of an autonomous system. It operates and carries out missions independently. Regardless of its surroundings, it responds with a certain intelligence. While traditional AI focuses on cognition and reasoning as isolated abilities, we strongly believe in perception as an active behaviour, which is integrated into general cognition.

The courses taught in the area of cognitive robotics are related to research in social/domestic robotics, human-robot interaction, and how robots can extend their knowledge over time by interacting with non-expert users.

Multi-Agent Systems
When a team of robots play football they have to communicate and cooperate with each other. This is an example of multiple agents acting concurrently; a multi-agent system. When designing these systems, techniques from computing science and logic are combined with knowledge about the interaction amongst humans and animals.

 

Study associations

Cover

Cover is the study association for bachelor and master students studying Artificial Intelligence, Computing Science or Human Machine Communication at the University of Groningen. We organise many events, all aimed at having a good time, improving upon your education skills and your future career. On our website you can check out our agenda to see upcoming events!
Our association counts many committees which work together to organise career related events, create our yearbook, plan trips abroad, provide study support to fellow students and much more. Feel free to walk into the Cover room (Bernoulliborg 0041a) where you can join in on a game, ask for help with a course or just hang out!
