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: autonomous perceptive systems, cognitive robotics and multi-agent systems.  

Autonomous Systems 
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 behavior, which is integrated into general cognition. 

Cognitive Robotics   
The courses taught in the area of cognitive robotics are related to research in social robotics, to the origin of robotic communication and to the way in which robots recognize movement. Research is conducted at the Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering Institute.  

Multi-agent Systems 
When a team of robots play football they have to communicate and cooperate with each other. This is an example of 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.

 

Programma-opties

  • Multi-Agent Systems (specialisatie)
  • Computational Intelligence and Robotics (specialisatie)
  • HTSM Honours Master (honoursprogramma)

    This Master's degree programme gives access to the additional, highly selective, High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM) Honours Master.

    The HTSM Honours Master is organized in cooperation with Philips and other major industry partners.

Exchange: All our science and engineering programmes offer study abroad possibilities at a number of partner institutions. Our partners include top-100 universities in Europe (for example in Germany, UK, and Sweden) and in the USA, China, South-East Asia, and South America. Our exchange programmes have a typical duration of one semester and count toward your final degree.

 

Arbeidsmarkt

Once you have obtained your Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence, you can apply your skills in research & development, for instance air traffic and space labs, where you make sure that intelligent and innovative technologies are used during the design process. You could also choose to get a job at a research institute where you work as a researcher. This can be done at a university (PhD) or at a research institute like TNO. About 50% of our students chooses a career as a scientist.

Where do graduated master AI students work at the moment? Maarten van Grachten and Mathijs Homminga did the AI master in the old doctoral program and they specialised in very different directions. Mathijs works as a software engineer at the IT-company Evermind. He programs and implements innovative IT-projects for shops. Maarten is doing a PhD in Barcelona where he investigates how a computer can compose jazz music.

 

Potentiële beroepen

Be part of a Programme with Excellent Reviews

Most of the teachers in the Master's programme also participate as researcher in the research institute ALICE: Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering. The content of the courses taught are closely linked to the research themes of the teachers.

The research in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering is inherently interdisciplinary in nature. With Computing Science, an interest in formal modeling is shared, where these models may be symbolic, statistical or hybrid in nature. With Psychology and Biology an interest in natural cognition is shared, where the goal is to describe fundamental qualities of cognition in such an explicit way that computational models of perceptual, cognitive, and behavioural control functions can be constructed. The research program of ALICE covers three interrelated areas in Artificial Intelligence:

- Cognitive Modeling
- Multi-Agent Systems
- Autonomous Perceptive Systems
