One of the most fascinating research issues today is the investigation of the true nature of intelligence: the study of learning processes, cognition and models, of natural language and perception, of human knowledge representation and reasoning

Related to these issues, one ultimate research objective in science is the development of an intelligent robot: a robot that can perceive, learn and communicate, through natural language as well as through vision, sensors and movement. A robot that can represent its own knowledge and reason based upon it, that can plan and act, assimilate new knowledge from experience in interaction with its environment, and, in general, that can perform tasks that one considers to be typical for intelligent human beings. 

The Master of Artificial Intelligence programme builds on these fascinating challenges. For many years, it has provided an internationally highly reputed, advanced study programme on artificial intelligence. The multidisciplinary programme trains students with a variety of backgrounds, including engineering, sciences, economics and management, psychology and linguistics, in all areas of knowledge based technology, cognitive science and their applications. This one-year programme, entirely taught in English, is the result of a joint effort by a large number of internationally leading research units from seven different faculties of this university.

"The Master of Artificial Intelligence offers a unique opportunity to broaden your horizon in an internationally and interdisciplinary oriented environment. At the same time you can specialize into topics of your favorite interest by selecting from a rich variety of courses taught by experts in the field. Artificial intelligence is more than studying, it is a bridge to your future..."
