Artificial Intelligence is a field that develops intelligent algorithms and machines, like self-driving cars, smart cameras, robotic manufacturing, internet searches and product recommendations.
Modern AI often involves self-learning systems that are trained on massive amounts of data ("Big Data"), and/or interacting intelligent agents that perform distributed reasoning and computation. AI connects sensors with algorithms and human-computer interfaces, and extends itself into large networks of devices. AI has found numerous applications in industry, government and society, and is one of the driving forces of today's economy.
Why the UvA?
The Master's programme in Amsterdam has a technical approach towards AI research. The programme covers a wide range of topics, such as Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Information Retrieval, Fairness and Symbolic Systems.
