AIMove Post-Master’s Degree: Artificial Intelligence and Movement in Industries and Creation


Program Description

AIMove Post Master's Degree is an accredited professional program, delivered by MINES ParisTech, PSL Université Paris and supported by a European consortium of IRCAM, CERTH, Goldsmiths College University of London, IDIAP and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The programme specialises in Human-centred AI (HAI) and enhances professional development and expertise in the fields of human-machine interaction and collaboration, internet of things, machine learning, pattern recognition, computer vision, VR/AR and mixed reality, and emergent related fields. This unique international program, taught entirely in English, brings together leading European professionals in this field and trains future HAI specialists in Human-Machine Collaboration.

AIMove is unique as it offers students a double expertise. Graduates will be specialized both in HAI technologies and in understanding the human movement, gestures and actions as well the human behaviour in general. AIMove responds to the emerging needs of both industry and society by promoting awareness of AI and ensuring immediate employment as an AI specialist in Industry 4.0, the Factory of the Future or the Creative and Cultural Industries.

To guarantee greater correspondence between educational and market demands, AIMove partners with companies and academia. This Post-Master’s Degree enables participants to acquire expertise in a rapidly-growing field, addressing a multitude of topics through courses on gesture recognition, machine learning, movement capture and analysis, human-computer interaction, collaborative and creative robotics, the IoT, etc.

After 6 months of intensive courses, graduates will be considered ‘Human-centred AI specialists’, capable of managing collaborative robotics projects, develop movement-based interactive systems, and designing innovative solutions for, among others, the factory of the future or the industry of autonomous vehicles. Student access to the labour market is facilitated by mandatory internships in high-tech enterprises.
