MSc Artificial Intelligence

What is intelligent behaviour? How can robots communicate with each other? How to design a system that negotiates? In this programme you will learn how to design and implement intelligent systems. Humans and animals are important sources of inspiration in this area.

The Master’s programme Artificial Intelligence (AI) focuses on the development of intelligent systems. The core topics in this master are autonomous perceptive systems, cognitive robotics and multi-agent systems.

 

Systems that can operate and carry out missions independently

Autonomous systems are systems that can operate and carry out missions independently, for example robots driving around on the moon taking samples and collecting information. Even in unpredictable surroundings these robots respond with a certain intelligence and take decisions about what to do. At the University of Groningen we concentrate on autonomous perceptive systems, i.e. robots that can find and read a sign in an unknown environment or systems that detect verbal aggression from the complex sounds of busy streets. While traditional AI focuses on cognition and reasoning as isolated abilties, we strongly believe in perception as an active behavior which is seamlessly integrated into general cognition.... [-]
